WHAT ABOUT INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES? I VOTE FOR THE PERSON NOT THE PARTY!

Answer

In MMP, just like now, independent candidates can run for every district seat, and have a chance of being elected.

However, independents would not be able to run on the 2nd part of the ballot, for the province-wide 'list' seats, unless they registered their own island-wide political party to support their bid.
