Election System – First Paste the Post Method

This method can only be a winner or a candidate. This method is the most popular among single winners. In this process, the candidate’s candidate can choose only one candidate and the winner will be the winner among the many candidates. In this case, the winning candidate can get fewer votes than the majority of the total vote. For example, if three candidates participate in the election, 35 percent of the candidates who are eligible to vote will be the winner, while the remaining four percent will be 26 percent. This is the most popular election system. The first post in the post was voted in our country. The problem in this method is that a small gap of each of the seats creates a huge gap – for example, in the eighth parliamentary election of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), in which 2,330,74,714 votes (41.40 percent of the total voted vote) got 193 parliamentary seats . In Bangladesh, Awami League got 22310276 votes (40.02 percent of the total voted vote) got 62. 1.02 percent of the vote is 131 seats.

Election System Proportional representational arrangements
The election system was followed to select more than one winner. In this system people’s representatives are elected on a proportionate basis according to the opinion of the public. For example, if the total number of seats in the country is 300, the party that got 40 percent of the votes will get 120 percent of the seats in this system.

Election System – Choice system

The English name is “preferential voting methods”, in this manner the voter is asked to sort the candidates according to their preferences. In this case, he has to be given a choice in each candidate, in some cases, in which case the minimum number of candidates are selected to be selected.
