The Scottish National Party in Orkney and Shetland has selected Robert Leslie, who came second in the 2019 contest in the islands, as their candidate for the 2024 General Election.
Orkney SNP has joined calls from across Scotland for the UK Government to step up its efforts to allow Ukrainian refugees easier access to the country.
Not all communities are the same. What works in urban Scotland
may not be fit for our rural or island communities and vice versa.
In the last parliament, the SNP delivered the Islands Act, giving
specific legal rights to Scotland’s islands to ensure that government
works with and for our island communities.
Robert Leslie has been selected as the SNP candidate for Orkney in next May’s Scottish Parliament elections.
Robert has bee a campaigner for independence since the 2014 Referendum.
He was born and brought in Orkney and currently works for Thaw and Orkney Housing Association.
