Scottish Parliament Election: Highlands and Islands Regional Candidates

When you vote in the Scottish Parliament elections on Thursday 6th of May 2021.There are two ballot papers.

  1. Orkney Constituency – First Past the Post – you have one vote
  2. Highlands and Islands Region – you have one vote – you vote for a political party or an independent individual.

Moira Ramage All For Unity

Moira Ramage is the lead candidate for the All For Unity party on the Highlands and Islands Regional List. Moira Ramage has been a Solicitor for more than 25 years and a Procurator Fiscal for more than 20.

In her candidate statement Moira says:

“I believe the Union has the financial strength and a genuine willingness to try to level things up. I have the voice and willingness to speak up and speak out on behalf of the people of the Highlands and Islands.”

All For Unity has George Galloway as its figurehead. Its manifesto aims to ‘Save Our Scotland.’

We believe passionately it is in Scotland’s interest to remain part of the United Kingdom.

All for Unity is actively working towards a pro-UK coalition so our Manifesto for Change is a statement of the principles we would bring to the work of building a cross party coalition with Labour, Conservatives and Liberals to make Scotland a happy, healthy and prosperous nation again.

Highlands and Islands Regional Vote

There are 2 people standing as independents (not in a political party) and there are political party lists.

If you vote for an individual that is recorded as a vote for that person.

If you vote for a political party then, depending on the share of the vote that party gets across the whole region, the candidates are elected from that party selected list. The political parties have ranked their candidates according to their selection rules of who they think is the top one etc.

  1. Only the SNP and Scottish Greens are actual Scottish parties with Scotland’s real interests at heart. The British Nationalist parties HQ’d in London, represent their own English based parties interests, that is so very obvious.
    No thanks, Scotland has massive resources, massive talent, and only independence will make sure that is not wasted, and that actual investment is made for future generations. The alternative is further, long term (terrifying) rule by disaster capitalists in London, who will continue to use Scotland to fund their terrible destructive policies, creating more poverty, more environmental damage, and much more inequality.
    Scotland says no thanks, we are massively capable of functioning as a 21st century, forward looking, life affirming country, in an independent capacity, like so many other countries around the world. Independence is normal, having major decisions made by a next door neighbour, about your country, which are incredibly detrimental to your economy, your environment, and societally, is not normal to say the very least.
