Proportional representation

If there is a vast disparity between votes cast and parties elected, there is a fault in the system. PR fixes this. I advocate specifically STV in wards of 4 5 or 6 members. The 3 and 4 member wards in use in Scotland under STV are insufficiently proportional and boundaries have been very artificial from this constraint and inflexibility.

The constitution needs to specify that 

all elections to public office shall use the single transferable vote system on boundaries drawn up by a Boundaries Commission.  No ward shall have less than 4 members nor more than 7.
