Perth & Kinross Liberal Democrats - General Election Candidates

May 13, 2017 5:40 PM
By Chris Rennie

The snap Westminster General Election will be held on Thursday 8 June and voters across the UK will vote for Members of Parliament to sit in the House of Commons. These are extraordinary political times and this is the first time since 1974 that a General Election has been held so soon after the last one. We view this election as a real opportunity to change the direction of the country and we are delighted to have two fantastic local candidates standing in both constituencies in the Perth & Kinross area; Cllr Peter Barrett in Perth & North Perthshire, and Dr Iliyan Stefanov in Ochil & South Perthshire. Peter and Iliyan both stood as our candidates in the same constituencies at the last UK General Election, in 2015. They are both committed to their respective areas and would be excellent MPs if elected. There is a strong chance to increase the number of Scottish Liberal Democrat MPs at this election, who will oppose both the Conservative's vision of a Hard Brexit (which Labour seem perfectly happy to go along with) and the SNP and Green's desire for a second Independence Referendum. So if you live in Perth & Kinross and want a local champion as your MP who will focus on the issues you care about and be an advocate for your area, then please give your vote to either Peter or Iliyan.
