Green Party

“Greens MPs will campaign for a modern, functional, representative democracy and measures to make parliament more representative, particularly of women, people of colour and disabled people.

Plaid Cymru

“At UK elections, we would support proportional representation so that a greater proportion of votes are used to elect representatives, rather than wasted. We prefer the Single Transferable Vote electoral
system, and will again push for this in Wales after the Senedd 2026 election.”

Reform UK

“Britain’s Constitutional Arrangements Need Reform. [inter alia…]

“Proportional Representation Voting for the House of Commons. Large numbers of voters have no representation in parliament and new parties are shut out of the political system. Voter turnout could be some 10% higher with PR. A referendum is needed.”

SNP

“[…] we will always stand up to promote and protect Scotland’s democracy and make sure that the people of Scotland’s voices are heard. SNP MPs will demand the UK Government: [inter alia…]
