First Past the Post (FPTP) System

FPTP is one of the most common electoral systems used worldwide. FPTP is straightforward to understand and administer.

In this system, voters cast a single vote for their preferred candidate, and the candidate with the most votes in a given constituency wins the election.

The candidate with the most votes, even if it's not an absolute majority, wins the election.

Under the First Past the Post (FPTP) System, voters can only choose one candidate.

FPTP often leads to a two-party dominance, as third parties can struggle to gain representation due to the "spoiler effect."
