d’Hondt – The Holyrood Polling System & the Rise of List Only Independence Parties

In September we invited a panel of four experts to discuss the Holyrood polling system and the rise of Independence parties standing for list seats only. Many thanks go to Keith Brown MSP (Depute Leader of the SNP), Lorna Slater (Co-convener of the Scottish Greens), David Thompson (Founder of Alliance for Independence Party) and Prof John Curtice (Polling expert, Strathclyde University)

If you missed this you can now watch the video and hear the arguments for and against using your 2nd vote to “game the system” in an attempt to increase the number of Independence supporting MSPs.
