What happens if an MSP dies or resigns?

0

If the MSP is from a constituency, there will be a by-election. If the MSP is from a region, then the next candidate on their party’s list will fill the vacancy. In effect, the party list candidates who just fail to be elected will form a ‘reserve’. If there are no further candidates from that party, then the seat will remain vacant until the next Scottish general election.
