'Only the SNP can restore spark of hope'
By-election candidate, David Kerr, has called on delegates at the SNP's 75th annual conference to come to Glasgow North East and help secure another historic win for the party - and a better future for local people.
Mr Kerr spoke to a motion condemning the Labour party for leaving the constituency without representation for over six months.
Addressing conference, Mr Kerr said: "I believe that the problems of this area are far outweighed by its potential.
"Labour have controlled Glasgow North East for 74 years - and they have failed.
"That's why it's time for a fresh start. That's why it's time for hope. That's why it's time for the SNP."
Campaign co-ordinator, Stewart Hosie MP added: "This is going to be a brammer of a by-election.
"The people of Glasgow North East and the SNP have what it takes to shake the Labour establishment - in London and City Chambers - to its core."
