A voting system can never be neutral. The method used to translate the votes of registered voters is crucial to the system and can greatly influence the nature of political parties and through this, the regime itself.

The British parliamentary system is characterized by the practice of the uni-nominal majority poll. This poll makes it possible to elect a representative in each district. There are 659 such centers in the United Kingdom.It is a simple poll but has many consequences on the British political life. The first of the consequences of this poll is a over-representation of the majority. In each district, the party whose representative arrived at the head, gains all the seats and the other parties do not have anything.
