Jo Swinson has been selected as the Scottish Liberal Democrat candidate for East Dunbartonshire in the June 8th General Election.
Jo Swinson said: “This next Parliament will be pivotal for our country, both for Scotland’s place in the UK, and the UK’s relationship with the rest of Europe.
“I’m standing in the General Election because I’m passionate about keeping Scotland in the UK, and averting the disaster of the Tories’ hard Brexit. Most people in East Dunbartonshire agree – 61% voted to stay in the UK and 71% voted to Remain in the EU. They deserve a pro-UK, pro-EU MP.
“East Dunbartonshire is the SNP’s second most marginal seat, with a majority of just 2167 over the Liberal Democrats. The result last time makes it absolutely clear: this is a fight between the SNP and the Liberal Democrats, and one I fully intend to win.”
