On Tuesday, the Your Movement (Twój Ruch) party announced its proposal to change the design of ballots used during Polish elections. The proposal aims to substitute the current rectangular paper ballots with circular ones.
Your Movement holds that the current design gives a substantial advantage to candidates ranked on the top of lists. The circular design intends to equalize each candidate’s chances during voting.
Round ballots were previously proposed by former Civic Platform MP, Robert Węgrzyn, who was ousted from the party due to his speeches against LGBTQ rights.
The new proposal joins other recent postulates by Your Movement. Janusz Palikot’s party previously expressed their will to shorten every MP’s maximum number of terms in office to two, and decrease the number of MPs to 360.
