UKIP candidate list for the Holyrood 2016 election

UKIP candidate list for the Holyrood 2016 election

UKIP's candidates for the Scottish Parliament election in May have been announced, with a list in every region. The party is standing four candidates in some regions and only three in others after rumours several party members who were selected withdrew from the process shortly before the deadline.

The process of selection has not been clear but it is understood the party's leader in Scotland David Coburn finalised the lists himself.

Scotland's MEP Coburn tops the list in the Highlands and Islands, while former Conservative candidate Alan Melville, who denied spitting at a Greens candidates in last year's general election, tops the list in Lothian.
