Re-elect John Finnie! Help us create a better Scotland and a bolder Holyrood by donating to our Crowdfunder:
There are 73 constituency MSPs and 8 regions each electing 7 MSPs so a total of 129.
The Scottish Green Party is only standing on the regional list in order to maximise votes. The percentage of votes a party receives on the regional list is divided by the number of MSPs already won plus 1. Therefore a regional vote is ‘worth more’ to a party if they have no constituency MSPs.
In Highlands and Islands the Greens have an impressive list topped by current Independent MSP John Finnie. Second is Isla O’Reilly who ran an excellent campaign in the last general election.
The full list is:
