The Herald reports CEOs are moaning that MMP won’t let them ram through unpopular policies:
Ahead of election day referendum on the future of MMP as New Zealand’s electoral system, the Mood of the Boardroom survey found 65 per cent of chief executives wanted it scrapped.
Many argued that major reforms that might be in the country’s long-term interests could be blocked by coalition partners because they were unpopular.
Thing is, it’s not up to this handful of unelected businessmen to decide what’s in the country’s long-term interests. In a democracy that’s a decision for the people. That’s why I’m voting MMP.
