Even more confusing is Singapore - according to what I read on the
wikipedia article recently, this is the first election since the
eighties that hasn't been won by *default* - in most, more than half
the seats were uncontested. And in this one, they won by something
like 88 out of 92 seats.
Now that is a situation to confuse any democracy supporter.
