If I read this correctly Non-faction-loving players (let's call them 
individualists) would have the choice between using all their voting 
point to have all faction's voting power decrease by 15% or spending 
their points increasing another individualist's voting power. Both seem 
pretty poor choices.

It would take 7 players all their voting points (this means they don't 
get to vote at all during that voting) to reduce faction's voting power 
to 0. That's never going to happen.
And why would you want to incentivate factions in the first place ?
