Josh Underhay - Green 

Question 1 - Past Record

For new candidates: Did you support and participate in the movement to Honour The Vote in 2016? Why?

Yes, I supported (and actively campaigned for) PR in the 2016 plebiscite.

Question 2 - Principles

Do you support Proportional Representation on principle? Why?

My understanding of the evidence is that proportional systems of government are more stable over time, more collaborative, and give voters more of a voice than our current system. For those reasons, I will mark Yes on my own referendum ballot on election day.

Question 3 - The Particular model

Do you support the specific Proportional Representation model that is proposed for PEI? Why?

 

Question 4 - Legitimacy of the Process

Do you believe the 2019 Referendum is a more legitimate, equally legitimate, or less legitimate process than 2016's plebiscite? Why?

 

Questions 5 - Commitment to future action

If you are a supporter of Proportional Representation:  Regardless of the Referendum result, if a majority of MLAs were in-principle supporters of Proportional Representation, would you introduce and/or support such legislation to improve the island's electoral system?

The Green Party of PEI has committed to honour the vote, regardless of the outcome.

As a legislator, however, I would represent the will of my constituents and Islanders - regardless of the outcome. In our platform, the Green Party has committed to honour the referendum.

It is possible for voters to vote Green and support MMP. Voters can also vote Green but support FPTP on their second ballot. Voters can also vote MMP and vote for a different party. The choice is up to the individual based on what they know and believe. I hope as many Islanders as possible take the time to watch YouTube videos, read, and learn as much as possible about the referendum, the candidates, and the platforms of the respective parties.

Questions 5 - Commitment to future action

If you are a supporter of Proportional Representation:  Regardless of the Referendum result, if a majority of MLAs were in-principle supporters of Proportional Representation, would you introduce and/or support such legislation to improve the island's electoral system?

I would.
