The Angus South Constituency Association of the SNP has selected incumbent MSP Graeme Dey as its candidate for next year’s Scottish Parliament elections.
The decision was unanimously endorsed at a constituency association gathering in Arbroath on Tuesday evening.
Graeme Dey commented: “I am delighted to have been re-selected as the SNP candidate and very much look forward to the forthcoming election campaign.
“It is a privilege being the MSP for Angus South and, while I will lead an energetic re-election campaign across the constituency, my priority over the coming months will remain discharging the responsibilities which go with that role”
Angus South SNP Constituency Convenor Councillor Sheila Hands said: “Graeme’s re-selection has proved a very popular choice across all six constituency branches.
“This is unsurprising given his tireless commitment to constituents and groups right across South Angus during his first four years as an MSP. I have no doubt that all of Graeme’s previous hard work and stewardship of the forthcoming campaign will lead to him increasing his majority.”
