Aberdeen Donside By-Election 20Th June 2013

Recommended Posts

A Scottish Parliament election only, so maybe not of much interest to all, but given the campaigning seems to have had its profile raised a bit recently it might be worth a watch.

The result from 2010 is complicated by the proportional representation system which allows candidates not explicitly named to be elected via party lists, but the seat is a clear and solid SNP one, a majority of over 7,000 and a share of the vote that is double that enjoyed by second placed Labour, which in turn is triple third place. These are not happy hunting grounds for the right, the Cons a hugely distant third and UKIP barely registering.

The Greens had a poor outing, but given Aberdeen's dependence on oil jobs that might be understandable.

Last results by party with a named candidate:


SNP 55.4%

Labour 28.5%

Conservative 8.1%

Liberal Democrats 6.0%

Independent 1.2%

National Front 0.8%

Independent 0.1%

Solidarity 0.1%

Independent - Andrew McBride 0.03%

Angus Independent Representatives 0.02%

With other parties coming in with vanishingly small fractions of the list votes(these are not derived from the same numbers as the percentages above, but good enough for an idea given the very small shares of the vote)

Scottish Green 2.5%

All Scotland Pensioners Party 2.0%

Socialist Labour 0.9%

Scottish Socialist 0.8%

UKIP 0.8%

Christian Party "Proclaiming Christ's Lordship" 0.8%

BNP 0.7%

There are seven candidates this time around:

UKIP Otto Inglis

Liberal Democrats Christine Jardine

National Front Dave MacDonald

SNP Mark McDonald

Scottish Green Rhonda Reekie

Conservative Ross Thomson

Labour Willie Young

Views welcome. Gotta be a solid SNP hold?
