The mixed-member proportional system (MMPS) that was first introduced in 1949 to elect the German Bundestag has been considered a model for electoral reform worldwide. In its homeland, however, it has met with increased criticism during the recent past and undergone a protracted reform process that led to an adjustment of the MMPS in 2013. However, as the new law produced some critical side effects it is again under intense scrutiny. The article explains why the MMPS has emerged as an international model, for what reasons it has become a case for reform in present Germany and in what way it might provide useful lessons for electoral reformers elsewhere.
