The Dunfermline Liberal Democrats are delighted that Sheila Ritchie has been elected as the Liberal Democrat MEP for Scotland. In Fife the Liberal Democrats came 2nd, proving that we are now the main opposition here to the SNP.
Sheila Ritchie will be Scotland's new Liberal Democrat MEP after a stunning Election campaign with the Liberal Democrats recording their strongest result. Councillor James Calder has welcomed the news.
James Calder has said, "I know Sheila well and she will make an excellent MEP for all of Scotland. We had a positive message of being the only party that supported Scotland staying in the UK and EU and this resonated with voters."
"Across Fife we came in 2nd place, and this was an amazing result locally. I would like to thank everyone in the area who voted Lib Dem and have given us their confidence. We are now the SNP's biggest challengers here and we will keep fighting for the local area to get the attention it deserves""
