WITH Parliament being dissolved tomorrow (Wednesday) the 2019 General Election will get into full swing later this week.

In two of our three seats covered by the Times there are already seven candidates named, but parties will be declaring their all their flag bearers over the next few days.

The Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath seat has three candidates named. Defending the seat for Labour is Lesley Laird while the SNP contender is Neal Hanvey, and the Scottish Green candidate is Scott Rutherford.

In Dunfermline and West Fife, which also covers Crossgates, Hill of Beath and Moss-side, Douglas Chapman will be defending the seat for the SNP and he will face opposition from Cara Hilton (Labour), Rebecca Bell (Liberal Democrat) and Mags Hall (Scottish Greens).

In Glenrothes and Central Fife, which covers Cardenden and Kinglassie, only Peter Grant had been nominated by yesterday (Tuesday).

There will be more contenders announced in all the seats in the coming days as campaigning gathers pace on the run-up to the December 12 poll.
