Lothian 2021 Regional candidates

We have a talented and diverse team of individuals standing for the Lothian region (list) in the May 2021 Scottish Parliament elections.

A strong vote for the Liberal Democrats across Lothian will see the party gain a list seat. If, as we hope, Alex Cole-Hamilton is re-elected in Edinburgh Western then our No.2 candidate on the Lothian list, former city councillor and human rights lawyer Fred Mackintosh would become your Lothian Lib Dem list MSP.

Here they are in the order they appear on the Regional ballot paper;
