PR squared

From electowiki

PR squared (also known as "PR2") is an election method that relies on the territory that the electorate lives in to be divided up into districts. Dr. Julian Wiseman is the voting theorist who devised PR squared. .According to a self-published paper from 1998, Dr. Wiseman describes the system this way.[1] To quote the original author:

It typically elects a majority government; it elects one local MP from each constituency each of whom is dependent on the local vote; yet still ensures that if two parties receive equal votes then they receive equal seats. Hence it has the advantages of first-past-the-post, and yet still has the 'fairness' of proportional representation.
