Translation: Marshal Morawiecki presents today "Rz". approval voting. An interesting, positive electoral law 

The newspaper headline from the attached image translates to: the voter can not be forced to vote only on one of the selected candidate and one political options

I'll try to dig up more on this.

Bingo. Here are two sources,

Probably the best electoral system in the world.
Increases freedom of choice. Fully expresses the collective will and emerges truer
than ever this will of social representation.
Proportional representation
It is extremely upartyjniona. The presence and position in the list of candidate depends
on the party's. Independent not have a chance. Votes are cast virtually the leaders of the
letter. If they gather enough of them are outside the parliament consists of a party
candidates with little support from voters. On the other hand, candidates do not come
with much more support, but exposed by weaker groups. Democracy becomes a
partiokrację. Is blocked from accessing new people and ideas into the political scene.
First-past-the-post voting
The voice cast is on the person. Its use, especially in the version elections in one turn,
leads to the dominance of the two groups that periodically exchange authorities. The
chances of candidates from outside of such a system - and without huge money - are
minimal. Although there is no electoral thresholds, it is even important electorates may
not get any representation in parliament. Collective entrance on the political scene is
very difficult. Votes for candidates not having the support of major parties are wasted.
Independent candidates cease to be reckoned with.

Złotousta Ewa Kopacz again
dazzled metaphor: "If our
neighbor torturing a child, we
do not have the moral right to
his torture with impunity." It's
about choosing judges of the
Constitutional Tribunal. So,
Ordinances mixed, with some members elected proportionally, and some supply a
majority, do not eliminate the disadvantages of both systems.
How to increase the possibilities of being elected and the possibility of same choice? Any
positive answer to this question will expand the area of our freedom. Social divisions
weaken or strengthen the state and the Polish nation. Will be in line with the motto "The
Free and Solidarity".
Vote for the person and for the group
The idea is that voters could vote both for individuals and groups. By endorsing the part
of some individuals and groups, and the second part, he could cast their votes in
accordance with their beliefs. Would not be the barriers to entry to the policy of the
newly emerging political parties, associations and people notifiers new programs and
ideas. Members were left to simply those who have more votes, regardless of what party
to belong to or not belong.
Do not waste your vote
It is also about to vote of any voter was not wasted. That is to say, so he could vote for
those they believe to be the best, and those who according to him, have a realistic
chance of selection. This will encourage participation in the elections. Will translate into
higher turnout.
The real possibility of being elected
Ordinance should also give a chance to the locally important, prominent people and
associations. It is also about the same availability to ineligibility for members and nonmembers.
The practical independence in accessing and realization of this right from
party structures. Nieodbieranie but also about the impact of these structures to
nominate their candidates.
Simple, intuitive and cheap
Regulations should be simple and understandable for everyone. Nieeliminująca, no
voice, even a person who inadvertently made a mistake when filling a voting card.
Insensitive to try to invalidate the voting by members of the public. Easy to counting
votes by hand and adapted to the electronic counting. It is also good that was cheap: not
only jednoturowa two. Well, to people it fits in the existing division of constituencies.
Here's suggestion
We reject the notion that we, Poles, have only imitate elsewhere used, problematic
constitutional arrangements.
We believe that this proposal will break the dispute between supporters of proportional
and majoritarian (JOW). Because, although from what we know, nowhere in the world do
not apply, it seems to be better than both of them. And better than a complicated mixedordination
German.
1. CANDIDATES:
A candidate can be any Polish citizen who is over 18 years. He must gather support for
example. 1000 inhabitants of the district and paid to the District Election Commission
say 1000 zł. (These numbers, of course, may be different, as long as the same for each
instance. 500 signatures and 2000 zł.). If a candidate wants with his name widniało
support of any one registered party or association must submit written consent from the
competent authorities of the organization. Without such consent,
each candidate will be marked as an independent.
2. LIST OF CANDIDATES:
Moiety can grant permission in the number
of candidates at most twice the number of seats in the district.

It will consist of blocks of the candidates with the support of parties or associations or
independent candidates. The blocks will be set randomly in each constituency.
Candidates will also blocks lined up in random order.
3. VOTING AND RESULT:
Each holder may vote for any number of freely chosen by themselves registered
candidates. It outlines cross each candidate. Sejm enter as many candidates as seats falls
on the district. These are the people who received the most votes. If there is such. Ten
seats, and the tenth and eleventh in the order people have the same number of votes, a
deputy is the candidate who previously registered. Voices The Commission has manually
after the computer is read cards.
4. MEMBERS substitutes:
Candidates who have not received credentials, but they have more number of votes, up
to the point corresponding to twice the number of seats is called. Members reserve.
Taken together, the Reserve parliament without legislative powers, but the law several
times to gather in the Sejm, the constitution and the transfer of collective opinion about
the state of the State.
5. tenure I MEMBERS SENIORALNI:
You can be sent only three terms in a row. Members of the previous term, who did not
enter the parliament deputies are called senioralnymi. They have specific privileges and
responsibilities.
The essence of ordination and its advantages
The essence and novelty of the proposed ordinance is that each voter can circle - which
has the right to choose - any number of candidates. It can be expected that this person
receiving the mandate will have greater voter support than in the previous ordynacjach.
By this they will have a sense of genuine, democratic representability general public. It
will be important for them and for voters.
This ordination, as opposed to the ordination of majority, proportional and mixedordination
is called libertarian. Because everyone it increases freedom of choice. Because
more fully expresses the collective will and emerges truer than ever this will of social
representation. Because I did not limit the availability of a candidate. Who choose to
leave the freedom to vote yes on individuals and groups. It also enables the weighing
and sharing your own voice.
What do you do in fact when you consider the partial rations of different groups and
individuals? Traditional ordinances restrict the time of your choice. Ordinance
libertarian enables a person to include in the act of voting election divided her sympathy
and expectations.
Do not be too concerned about the excessive fragmentation in parliament. The election
results will capture the support of the dominant party. And the entrance to the political
games for forming groupings and interesting people will be much easier than in the
current ordynacjach.
Politicians and citizens, professionals and laymen, please discussion. Because, to
paraphrase the famous sentence: "This will Republics that their representatives Dialing".
