I'm backing Keith because: I believe Keith has the necessary leadership skills to make the partnership with Nicola Sturgeon a strong and successful one. He has proven his ability to work tirelessly and for the benefit of the people of Scotland and his time as Transport Minister has seen him handle many difficult situations with great skill. As a fellow veteran, I recognise his leadership qualities. He has a personable manner which is essential as deputy leader and has proved he is capable of hard work, being 100% commitment to the task in hand. I believe he is the best candidate for the position of Deputy First Minister and wish him well in the upcoming election for this post.
