I answered definitively yes. Our democratic systems must be transformed to solve all these problems.

  • Electoral list - An electoral list is like a shareholder list; it should always be up to date.
  • Electoral districts - Electoral districts should be designed in order to facilitate the functioning and development of the local collectivity it deserves and facilitate relations with citizens. It should not be designed to assure the election of a political party. Hence its design should be neutral.
  • Political parties - We should find an electoral system where we elect independent representatives, not representative of political parties.
  • Money -  We should adopt a free electoral system where candidates are elected on the basis of their competency to represent their fellow citizen, not to raise money.

@Sabrah What do you think?
