MDN’s objectives

Mouvement démocratie nouvelle (MDN, The Movement for a New Democracy) is a non-partisan citizens’ movement that is focussed on achieving a new voting system in Québec. MDN believes that establishing a new proportional representation voting system will improve representative democracy, and will, in the long run, transform our society. According to MDN, the next voting system in Québec must reach these democratic objectives:

  • Accurately reflect the will of the people
  • Aim for equal representation of men and women
  • Embody the diversity of Québec
  • Allow for political pluralism
  • Take into account the significance of rural areas in the overall reality of Québec
