Run-off nothing new globally

Taken straight off the Internet, “Run-off voting is a voting system used in single-seat elections. It is used widely around the world, including in elections for the president of France and Finland, and especially in a poli­tical party’s primary elections, in which it selects candidates to present to the public.”

Its main objective is for any given popu­la­tion to have a political representative who

commands the majority support. The Gov­ernment tried to accomplish this much, to the execration of persons who didn’t take the time to understand its function but rather followed the ignorant slant of those opposed to it.

Why demonise something without taking the time to understand it? We cannot expect change doing the same thing repeatedly.
