Alison Burns, Alison McInnes and Allan Petrie back fairer votes

Dundee Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidates Alison Burns (Dundee City West) and Allan Petrie (Dundee City East) have met up with Alison McInnes, Liberal Democrat MSP for North East Scotland, in Dundee's West End to show their support for the Yes to Fairer Votes campaign.

Alison Burns said, "At the moment, MPs can be elected with fewer than one vote in three. With fairer votes, MPs would have to aim to get more than 50% of the vote to be sure of winning. This is good for democracy."

Allan Petrie added, "We need political reform now and the Alternative Vote is our best chance. For far too long we've had a situation where a monkey could get elected just by wearing the right colour of rosette.

That must change if we want the right people in government taking decisions on our behalf. We must say goodbye to First Past the Post, and vote Yes to AV."

Alison McInnes MSP said, "I am delighted that Dundee Liberal Democrats are campaigning for a YES vote on 5th May. The campaign for Fairer Votes is gathering momentum in Dundee and across Scotland."
