Commenting on the news that the Scottish Labour candidate Colin Yorkston has been successful in the Preston/Seton/Gosford ward by-election, Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar said:

“This is a phenomenal result and all the credit for it must go to Colin, his local team and the hard work done by all the Scottish Labour family.

“In Colin the people of East Lothian have a local champion who is ready to carry on the work of the sorely missed Willie Innes.

“It is clear that Scottish Labour is the only party that can not only oppose the SNP and Tories, but can replace them.

“We are ready to build a brighter future for the people of Scotland – join us on that journey.”

Scottish Labour councillor Colin Yorkston added:

“I am delighted and honoured to follow in the footsteps of Willie Innes and serve as Scottish Labour councillor for Preston, Seton and Gosford.

“All across Scotland, Scottish Labour is showing that it has the ability to not just oppose but to replace the SNP and the Tories.

“I encourage the people of Scotland to take a fresh look at Anas Sarwar’s Labour and join us on our journey to build a fairer, brighter future for the people of Scotland.”
