The AV system is cumbersome and at best, leaves the electorates with the second-best candidate [or choice].
The argument that the ‘selected’ winner is the choice of many is nothing near the truth. In the right sense, the redistribution of votes means the forcing of an ‘alternative’ choice on an entire electorate. It is a disjointed choice because a second choice is made based on a whole lot of different factors.
For instance, while I may chose my first choice for an array of reasons which may ring up to 100%, my second choice may be “just because of a few reasons”... And when this reasons are spread out, and then joined together, my choosing someone because he hates gay people, may actually be the least of the reasons why most others chose him as a second. Thus all those others may get him but for different single reasons, etc.
If a AV is to produce a clear result, then redistribution should not come into it
