PERTH COUNCIL BY-ELECTIONS

Commenting on the results of the Perth City South and Perth City North by-elections, Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has congratulated both winners.

She said: “Huge congratulations to Ian Massie on being elected to represent the Perth City North ward with a thumping majority."  

“Ian was elected on first preferences taking 60 per cent of the vote, a 10 per cent increase in the SNP vote.  That is no small achievement in a proportional representation election contest and I am certain that he will be a great councillor for the area. 

“The picture in the Perth City South ward was less clear cut and significantly more complicated.  Iain MacPherson also increased the SNP vote and topped the poll when first preferences were counted.  However, in a tight three-way contest, which Iain led until the very last round, the votes of the eliminated Tory candidate pushed the Lib Dem in front and I offer Liz Barrett my congratulations."

“The SNP candidates in both these wards fought very strong campaigns in really difficult circumstances and they each deserve congratulations for what they achieved.”
