Electoral reform proposals in Israel and their implications for metropolitan reorganization

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Presents a contribution to the debate on how to introduce some form of territorial representation within a non-electorally districted proportional representation framework in Israel, highlighting some of the disadvantages of the most realistic solutions. The key problem is to create constituencies which have roughly equal populations, are geographically contiguous, and have some meaning which voters can relate to. Having provided detailed descriptions of 4 possible solutions, the author concludes that it is impossible to uphold the integrity of the primary administration network whilst simultaneously maintaining complete units in the metropolitan areas of Tel Aviv and Haifa. -P.Hardiman
