Dundee Liberal Democrats have announced the selection of Clive Sneddon as their candidate for Dundee East at next year's Scottish parliamentary election.

Clive teaches French at St Andrews University, and is married with two children. He has been active in Scottish politics since 1975, when he joined the Liberal Party. He was a candidate for Scotland in the 1999 and 2004 European Parliamentary elections, before which he was leader of the former North East Fife District Council for its last eight years to 1996.

Clive also fought the Dundee East seat at the last Scottish Parliamentary election and at last year's Westminster General Election.

Clive said, "I am delighted to have again been chosen to contest Dundee East at next year's Scottish Parliament election. At last year's election in Dundee East, it was the Liberal Democrats who had the largest increase in vote share and the recent by-election result in Dunfermline & West Fife shows that the LibDems are increasing support whilst Labour, Tories and Nationalists are falling behind. I look forward to working hard for the constituency."
