In any system where you require at least 50%+1 to get anything done, you will always have the emergence of exactly two parties.

There may be sub-parties within the parties, and alliances may shift over time.  But if you expect to actually achieve anything...ever...after winning an election, you have to be capable of having a plan on how to gather 50%+1 support amongst your fellow elected officials.  The simplest, most reliable path towards that is to work together with roughly half of your fellow officials on a consistent basis, so that you've got a built-in core of likely supporters for whatever it is that you are trying to achieve legislatively.
