How will regional MPs work for constituents? Here's how they do it in Scotland.
Proportional representation means fair and unrestricted competition among political parties presenting democratically-nominated candidates. Democracy is at its core, not more power to party elites.
Parties can nominate several candidates at once democratically, in the same way they nominate single candidates: by vote of the membership in the district or region. Depending on local geography, it might be entirely an in-person meeting, or might include online voting.
Update: the 2018 election:
How well did Bavaria’s open-list MMP system work in 2018?
They elected 205 MLAs: 91 directly elected, 114 regional top-ups elected
from open regional lists. The governing CSU lost their majority, and formed a coalition government with the centre-right “Free Voters.” This
was not simple, since the “Free Voters” had never whipped their members
votes, but now had to.
Of the 114 list seats, 31 were elected thanks to voters moving them up the list, while 83 would have been elected with closed lists.
Did the list-topper (first on the list) always get elected? Almost. In the region of Lower Bavaria, the liberal FDP elected only 1 MLA, and he had been second on their regional list.
One of the more unusual new Green MLAs is Paul Knoblach, a 12th-generation Bavarian farmer. Knoblach was among the CSU’s longtime supporters and had volunteered for its campaigns. But in 2018, at age 64, he ran for the legislature for the first time. And he did it as a Green. He was number 12 on the Green regional list for Lower Franconia, but he got enough attention that the voters moved him up to 3rd place and into the legislature.
Did the open lists hurt women? I did not check most results, but the SPD zippers their lists, and I noticed in Upper Palatinate the SPD elected 2 MLAs, list numbers 1 and 3 (two women). Conversely, in Middle Franconia the SPD elected 4 MLAs: 1, 2, 3, and 5 (three men).
All CSU members were elected directly, no list seats.
Here are the details of three of the seven regions:
