Local MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton is the new Leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats.
Speaking shortly after the announcement he said, “It is a great honour to become the leader of my party, but I’m in no doubt whatsoever where my priorities lie.
“I was elected first and foremost to serve the people of West Edinburgh in the Scottish Parliament and there is no higher calling for me than that.
“My colleagues and I remain committed to keeping you informed and acting on your behalf if you ever find yourself in need of help. That will always be my first priority.”
