British Voters cancelled Electoral System Reforms.....

 Britain Voters have overwhelmingly rejected a referendum to change the country's electoral system.
Almost 68-percent of voters said “no” to the so-called “alternative vote” system in Thursday's polling. Under the new system, if a voter's first choice candidate was eliminated, the vote would go to the voter's second-choice candidate until one candidate earned a majority.
 The Scottish National Party won an outright majority in parliamentary polls — a first since Scotland's regional government was formed in Scotland.Overall results show the SNP won 69 seats while the Labor party came in second with 37 seats. The win prompted SNP leader Alex Salmond to promise a vote on independence from Britain in the next four years.
Electoral returns Saturday showed that former bitter foes — the pro-British Democratic Unionist Party and the Irish Catholics of Sinn Fein — increased their control of the province's 108-seat assembly, with 38 and 29 seats respectively in Northern Ireland.
The results reinforced their status as the largest parties in the assembly and the co-leaders of government.
