    Abstract

    Das derzeitige Wahlsystem zum Deutschen Bundestag weist einen schwerwiegenden Defekt auf: Mehr Stimmen für eine Partei können dazu führen, dass diese weniger Sitze erhält - das sogenannte negative Stimmgewicht. Das Bundesverfassungsgericht hat den Bundestag aufgefordert, bis Ende Juni 2011 diesen Fehler durch eine Änderung des Wahlrechts zu beseitigen. Hierzu gibt es eine Vielzahl von Möglichkeiten. Dieser Artikel unternimmt den Versuch, mögliche Änderungen aus Sicht der Social Choice-Theorie zu beurteilen. Hierzu wird ein einfaches System von Bedingungen an Wahlen vorgestellt, anhand dessen die bisherigen Lösungsvorschläge systematisiert werden. Dabei stellt sich heraus, dass es kein Wahlsystem geben kann, das gleichzeitig all diesen Bedingungen genügt. Dennoch lassen sich unter den existierenden Änderungsvorschlägen solche identifizieren, die mehr wünschenswerte Bedingungen erfüllen als andere. --
