Question Answer
GVC Greater Voter Choice Voter is given 2 votes (one for a party and one for a candidate) where they are able to split their vote between parties
BSP Benefits Smaller Parties AMS is good for small parties as they are better and more fairly represented and the voter does not see a vote for them as 'wasted' as under FPTP
G4C Good For Conservatives AMS saved the Scottish conservatives from political extinction. In 1999 all 18 Cons MSPs were from the list - none were voted for from FPTP constituencies. 2011 Cons 3rd largest part in Scottish Parliament
E1PD End to 1 Party Domination AMS was designed to produce coalitions. In 2007 SNP won the most seats but did not get an overall majority. In 1999&2003 Labour won most seats but again did not get an overall majority
GC Greater Choice Voter can choose who they wish to engage with, hence giving them greater choice.
