The analysis includes an attempt to represent various remarks associated with the electoral engineering, based on the experience of the Republic of Czech, where brand-new electoral system was adopted in the early 90s. Constitutional engine-ering was used at first as an instrument of analysis determining if modifications of the former electoral system are possible and how would various revisions influence performance of particular political party’s interests. The analysis led to a conclusion that there is no universal patent for electoral sys-tems. There are no guarantees that the same regulation would function in the exact same manner as it does in the Republic of Czech and in the Republic of Poland, not even mentioning other countries located in different regions or continents. It is obvious that every country requires a sovereign decision in respect to the electoral system. Therefore, proposals of so called specialists suggesting taking over regulations following the British system (relative majority), Irish system (single transferable vote formula), or German system (personalisierte Verhältniswahl) should be re-jected. Rejection of the above-mentioned proposals stems from the fact that a par-ticular electoral system will function differently in every country, depending on various circumstances.
