The Scottish Churches Parliamentary Office has produced a guide to holding a hustings or Question Time Event

INFORMATION FOR CHURCHES ON HOLDING AN ELECTION HUSTINGS OR QUESTION TIME MEETING

Elections for the Scottish Parliament are scheduled Thursday 6 May 2021.

In the period before an election, churches and community organisations often put on election meetings (sometimes known as hustings). They do this as a public service, to support the democratic process, to facilitate public debate and as a contribution to the common good.

At these events members of the public can listen to and ask questions of the candidates who are standing for election. Meetings organised by church groups can provide an opportunity for respectful discussion in a neutral space, which is often appreciated by candidates as well as voters.
