    London may win Olympics through alternative vote system

    Rather interesting that a form of the alternative vote system may be the reason behind London possibly winning the Olympics in 2012. The Independent has this article:

    It will be chosen on a variation of the "alternative vote", with the least popular bidders dropping out of the race one by one and their supporters choosing between the remaining candidates. The winner will be the city that finally gathers 50 per cent support among members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) , who are meeting in Singapore on 6 July. The Government accepts that London is likely to come second to Paris in the first round of voting, but believes that it can pick up enough backing from supporters of the rival cities, New York, Madrid and Moscow, to come from behind to win.
