Dundee Liberal Democrats today (Saturday 24th November) said they had made "significant progress" at the Lochee Ward by-election last Thursday.

The Liberal Democrat candidate Chris Hall had the largest increase in share of the vote of any candidate (3.9%) and both Labour and Conservative candidates saw their vote share fall.

Cllr Fraser Macpherson, Leader of the Dundee LibDem City Council group said, "Chris Hall ran a marvellous campaign which saw our vote share increase significantly. The LibDems will be challenging for one of the Lochee Ward seats at the next Council elections."

Nicol Stephen MSP, Scottish Liberal Democrat Leader said, "My congratulations to the LibDem team in Dundee for achieving a big growth in our share of the vote in Dundee Council's Lochee by-election.

"There have now been three by-elections in Scotland since May. They have been in Aberdeen, Argyll and Dundee. The combined results show that the Liberal Democrat vote share has gone up by more than any other party."
