Usually proportional representation is used to describe a system where the number of seats each party gets is proportional to the number of people who voted for them (so if 10% of voters vote for party X, then party X gets 10% of the seats).

Since each candidate in the foundation election is an independent and can win at most one seat, I don't really think proportional representation applies here.

I still think that preferential voting is worth investigating though. It seems like a fairer system which handles people voting for popular candidates more fairly.
