Patria is still a small party for now. But we are growing and in any case our aim is to be the best political party, not the biggest.

Although it might be thought a system of proportional representation would benefit us as a small party, we are opposed to it. The reason being that we put the interests of the country before those of our party.

First Past The Post is clearly the best system both from the point of delivering a stable, one party, majority government and from the point of providing local accountability of MPs to their constituents within a defined geographical area.
