Reported by Newstalk ZB:
Internet MANA’s making a move on the five percent MMP threshold.
The Party wants the law on the threshold changed and is running an online petition to test public opinion.
Internet Party leader Laila Harre says there’s a lot of politics being played on the issue and it’s time for the people to have a say.
She says the five percent threshold means more than 100,000 voters for a single party can have their vote ignored.
Ms Harre says collectively it’s a significant share of the party vote.
I’ve no idea if what Internet Mana Party is doing has been reported correctly, but a petition will tell you that a bunch of people care enough about something to sign a petition about it. It will not measure (or test) public opinion about that thing. For that you need a well designed survey.
