Holyrood 2016: List Candidates Announced

The results have now been announced for the rankings of SNP candidates standing for the regional lists in next year’s elections to Holyrood. The lists supply the “top-up” seats intended to make the result more proportional: these are important because even if we do very well in the constituency votes, the party will almost certainly need some seats from the list vote if it is to win a historic third term in power. So having good candidates on the list is crucial!

Stirling is part of the Mid-Scotland and Fife region, and the ranking here is as follows:


1 John Swinney

2 Annabelle Ewing

3 Keith Brown

4 Shirley-Anne Somerville

5 David Torrance

6 Alycia Hayes

7 David Doogan

8 Roderick Campbell

9 Karen Marjoram

10 Rosemary Hunter

11 Maciej Wiczynski

12 Neale Hanvey

Some well-known names there, including a couple local to the Stirling area. The best of luck to all the candidates – let’s work hard to get a strong vote on the list and get as many of them elected as we can!

The list on the main SNP site seems to have disappeared with the recent site update, but the full listing for all regions can also be found at Holyrood Magazine.
