MONTREAL, Oct. 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Libdemo Movement is launching
a campaign to raise awareness of vote-splitting between the Liberal
Party, the NDP, and the Green Party that enabled the Conservatives'
election wins in 2006 and 2011—and will quite possibly lead to another
Conservative win in 2015 if the parties do not address the issue soon.
A clear majority of 195 seats
The movement's researchers tabulated 2011 election results to
demonstrate how a unified party could have easily defeated the
Conservatives. In 53 ridings—including 32 in Ontario alone—the Liberal
or NDP candidate came in second due to vote-splitting between the three
parties, resulting in Conservative candidates being elected with a
minority of the popular vote. Had these ridings been won by candidates
from a unified party, the party would have formed a decisive and truly
representative majority government of 195 seats.
