The election saw the creation of a three party minority coalition consisting of the Leftist Alliance, New Left, and the Green party.

The election also saw the rise of the Progressive Conservative Party of Scotland, the Scottish branch of the Democratic Coalition, which fell only 3 seats short of a majority and almost found itself in government in a minority coalition with the Social Liberals until the SNP backed out of supporting the coalition in favour of supporting a Leftist Alliance led government.
