MSP Rona Mackay has commented on the election result in East Dunbartonshire.

She said: “East Dunbartonshire has lost a hard-working, excellent MP and I am extremely disappointed at the result. However, this is the democratic process and I respect the outcome.

“John Nicolson made his mark in East Dunbartonshire and was a strong voice nationally. He was a great ambassador for our Party and for Scotland and I am sure he will continue to contribute to our democracy.

“The new MP for East Dunbartonshire has big shoes to fill and I will do my utmost to ensure she performs to the standard the public expects.

“While there are disappointing losses across the country, the SNP has won this election in Scotland. It is our second biggest win at a General Election and I would like to congratulate all of our re-elected MPs.”


Rona Mackay was elected in May 2016 with a 8,100 majority in Strathkelvin and Bearsden.

Prior to this, she was a journalist in national newspapers for more than 20 years, before becoming Parliamentary Assistant to Clydebank and Milngavie MSP Gil Paterson, with whom she worked for nine years before becoming elected.
