In the spotlight: These are the names tipped to be the next Scottish Labour leader
We take a look at who might take Kezia Dugdale’s place as Scottish Labour leader
FOLLOWING Kezia Dugdale’s surprise resignation as leader of Scottish Labour, there is no shortage of possible candidates to replace her.
Dugdale herself became leader in 2015 after defeating Ken Macintosh with 72 per cent of the vote, following a relatively uncrowded leadership election.
Candidates for Scottish Labour leadership can be either MSPs, MPs, or MEPs. In order to be nominated, candidates require at least 15 per cent support from Labour MSPs, MPs and MEPs.
