The equivalent of an MP except that a Member of the Scottish Parliament (sometimes just Member of Scottish Parliament), obviously, is elected into the Scottish Parliament. They are elected via the Additional Member System and so they either have been elected directly to represent as constituency or they are elected for a region using a list system where the party (if they win in a region) will appoint a certain MSP to that region. This can be useful if your leader doesn't get elected by his constituency (this happened with Labour in the Welsh Assembly elections of 1999).
