THE National Reform Steering Assembly’s (NSRA) political reform committee Monday struck out against the proposed single-ballot system, saying it would worsen vote-buying practice, while not reflecting voters’ intentions.

The committee claimed also that the new senators selection method, as well as the prime ministerial list idea, would not work. And difficult constitutional amendments would cause another deadlock that would result in the charter being torn down again.
The NSRC was scheduled Monday to comment to the Constitution Drafting Commission about the initial charter draft released last week. A number of political reform committee members took turns discussing its keys issues and agreed that the newly proposed electoral system—Mix Member Apportionment—was a weakness.
