Labour’s Pamela Nash has retained Airdrie and Shotts for her party, maintaining Labour’s presence in this mainly working-class seat.
This result was largely expected, as incumbent MP and former Home Secretary John Reid, who stood down at this election after 16 years in office, took nearly six in ten votes during the last General Election.
Ms Nash, 25, was born and grew up in the constituency, hailing from Chapelhall. She attended St Margaret’s in Airdrie and went on to study at Glasgow University.
She was previously a member of the Scottish Youth Parliament for Airdrie, making her the first member of the charity to go on to become an MP.
Ms Nash worked as a parliamentary researcher for Mr Reid. Prior to that, she was an employee at Boots. Her selection caused a slight stir at the time among Airdrie and Shotts Constituency Party members, partly as she was chosen from an all-woman shortlist.
