Škotijos rinkimų sistemos įtaka valdžių pusiausvyrai.
On 6 May, 1999, voters elected the first Scottish Parliament since 1707 and members of Scottish Parliament. Additional Member System is the new element to the electoral system used for the first time in the UK in the elections to the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly. The overall effect is that parties which win lots of constituency seats under First Past the Post System will not get many Additional Members and parties which receive lots of votes but not win many constituency seats are likely to do well in getting Additional Members. Additional Member System generally assists the election of small parties. With many of the results now in from the elections for the new Scottish parliament, it appears certain that the Labour Party, which forms the British government, will win the largest number of seats. However, it's likely to fall short of an overall majority and will have to form a coalition with another party to govern in the parliament – the first such body in Scotland for almost three hundred years. The new assemblies are the biggest constitutional change in Britain for many years. A referendum on independence for Scotland will also be promised to SNP voters.
