Your District

Regardless of the referendum result, if 14 of the 27 MLAs vote in favour of Proportional Representation, it can become reality for PEI.

So, we are sending all candidates/nominees a survey about their commitment to Proportional Representation. Their responses will be published on this website.

From District 1 Souris-Elmira to District 27 Tignish-Palmer Road, boundaries have recently changed. Your new district may be different to your current district. Use this address locator tool on the Elections PEI website to find your new district for 2019.

The Survey Questions

Candidates can fill out the survey at this link: bit.ly/CandidateSurveyPRonPEI2019


Question 1 - Past Record

For incumbent candidates: Did you Honour The Vote by supporting acceptance of the results of the plebiscite in 2016? Why?

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

Question 2 - Principles

Do you support Proportional Representation on principle? Why?

Question 3 - The Particular model

Do you support the specific Proportional Representation model that is proposed for PEI? Why?
The proposed model is Mixed-Member Proportional Representation, with 2/3 district seats, and 1/3 compensatory regional seats, with open party lists.

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

The electoral system can be changed directly by the Legislative Assembly, without going through a public referendum. Proportional Representation legislation could be introduced at any time. It could pass into law if a majority of MLAs supported it, or could be rejected if a majority of MLA rejected the change. (Yes, this means that the 'binding referendum' is not actually 'binding'.)

Depending on your answer to Question 2...

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?

If you are not a supporter of Proportional Representation: If Proportional Representation wins the referendum, will you Honour The Vote and vote in favour of Proportional Representation legislation?


These 5 questions will be sent to all known nominees/candidates.
Their responses will be published on this website, and their scores recorded in the table above, within a few days of their answers being received.
