Fostering a fundamental change from pseudo democracy to dynamic democracy

Dynamic voting is a fundamental shift from voting once every 5 years during elections to voting whenever an eligible elector decides to exercise his fundamental right to vote. It creates a system without endorsing party representatives and encourages people to represent themselves. Static constituency barriers are broken, broadening participation. Dynamic voting methods can be implemented through digital networks and connected electronic devices that allow eligible voters to exercise their fundamental right to vote without compromising security and confidentiality.

Through the Dynamic Voting System, the top 650 (or any other number) are official “elected representatives” and empowered to perform the duties, responsibilities, and obligations of an elected member of Parliament.

As votes in dynamic voting are transferable, the electorate actively review their individual positions in relation to how their vote is routed. A vote can either be a direct or an indirect vote. While a direct vote is a vote cast directly in favor of an elected representative, an indirect vote is a vote routed through another registered member who can either be a direct and an indirect voter. Dynamic voting allows indirect voters to trace the path along which their votes have been routed and choose to retain or realign their positions to attain an alternate route.

Dynamic voting, based on a combination of direct and indirect votes not only determines elected representatives (a term used instead of members of Parliament), but also the Prime Minister. However, the Prime Minister will continue to have discretionary powers to extend invitations to Elected Representatives to be his Cabinet Ministers.

Technically, with dynamic voting in place, the need for an opposition or even a Parliament will be no longer required.
