TIM Kirker writing in favour of the alternative vote for Parliamentary elections (Your say, March 9), begs the question: If it’s so wonderful why are there only three countries in the world using it – Australia, Fiji and Papua New Guinea? Furthermore, minority parties could have several votes counted in second and third preferences, while persons voting for mainstream parties counted only once. So some votes are worth more than others.

Let’s stay with one person one vote one count.
