Samkelo Baliti Posted over 1 year ago Improve all democracies in the world, implement the Negative Vote. Sam I quote you said in your response Freedom to choose is an essence of democracy. That is so true my friend, we also have a freedom not to choose which is still the essence of democracy. In all democracies not everyone votes or allowed to vote. That creates an uneven situation where reality dictates that when people vote not all will be equal in terms of numbers. The picture I painted of party A to part D is what is currently happening here in RSA where the ANC had an overwhelming majority of votes and if we applied negative voting as you say we would not have any minority representation in parliament and the major party can do as they please. But because minority still keep their votes as small as they are, the minority still plays a fundamental role in our democracy. The cancelation of one vote by another would have denied them this democratic right and also denied them access to parliament.
