Re: Power unchecked

"The only thing that FPTP does guarantee is a two party system."

Not at all.

In many elections a majority could go to any of three parties, or a minority government that caries on as such.

Then there are the cases when two parties agree to form a majority coalition, in which case any of four parties could be involved in the government.

The political landscape can be even more complicated when a party which is not the provincial version of one of the three leading federal parties becomes a majority in a province.

As a result, federal/provincial conferences may have representatives of five or more parties, each controlling a government.
