Scottish Conservatives triumph over SNP in Dunblane and Bridge of Allan by-election

The Scottish Conservatives have triumphed in the Dunblane and Bridge of Allan by-election, gaining the seat from the SNP.

Local resident Robin Kleinman won over 40 per cent of the first preference votes cast, with the party’s vote share increasing by almost 11 per cent.

The SNP were pushed into second place with around 26.9 per cent of the vote, with Labour in third on only 13.4% of the vote.

Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross says the result shows that voters have put a strong show of faith in his party and they recognise that only the Scottish Conservatives are strong enough to stand up to the SNP and hold them to account for their failings.

 

Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross said: “This is a terrific by-election win for the Scottish Conservatives and my congratulations go to Robin Kleinman as our party’s newest councillor.

“I campaigned with Robin and I know he will be a fantastic councillor and a strong voice for the area he is proud to call home.

“Having gained this seat from the SNP and significantly increased our share of the vote, it’s clear people have strong faith in our party. They have also recognised that only the Scottish Conservatives have the strength to stand up to the SNP and hold them to account for their failings at all levels of government.

“Labour are simply too weak under Anas Sarwar to stand up to the nationalists and their continued obsession with breaking up the United Kingdom at any cost.

“This by-election victory for the Scottish Conservatives – against the backdrop of the SNP’s bitter leadership contest – reaffirms that we are the real alternative for Scots who are tired of this out-of-touch and divided SNP government.”
