Britain population distribution was different in Britain in the way that it...therefore their system is not applicable Look at France notes below for refutation of counterargument about majoritarian ALSO, in this case a plurality system is a single-winner and winner-take-all form of government which would not appeal to the minority group ONCE EVERYONE IS WELL-REPRESENTED, SO WILL THEIR ECONOMIC NEEDS, STABALIZING ECONOMY PP3/Conclusion o Why the two together do not clash and would benefit foreign country Italy Italy started as one of the weaker and instable countries and now it's one of the most powerful economies Quick expansion Important for a country in need of immediate solutions Find out years it took to become stable for Italy and another Country Both a parliamentary system and proportional representation have an emphasis on equal representation, which is one of the main problems this hypothetical country is facing o Though countries like Britain and France had a parliamentary but with electoral laws different from PR, this combination would best solve the current problems Although all the countries mentioned experienced several changes in government and may even have different governments in place now, a parliamentary with proportional representation may only help the government in the short term, but it would give the country the temporary stability to fix the immediate problems so that it could prosper quicker and more efficiently. Counter argument Could be that Italy's gov't sucks now BUT one could argue that it has much to do with the citizens themselves (they're apathetic), not necessarily the system NOTES Britain o Parliamentary with Plurality system o Used coalition gov'ts in times of national crisis I.e.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
