North East Fife Scottish Parliament Constituency
North East Fife is a constituency of the Scottish Parliament. It elects one Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) by the plurality (first past the post) method of election. It is one of nine constituencies in the Mid Scotland and Fife electoral region, which elects seven additional members, in addition to nine constituency MSPs, to produce a form of proportional representation for the region as a whole.
The other eight constituencies of the Mid Scotland and Fife region are Clackmannanshire and Dunblane, Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath, Kirkcaldy, Mid Fife and Glenrothes, Perthshire North, Perthshire South and Kinross-shire and Stirling.
The region covers all of the Clackmannanshire council area, all of the Fife council area, all of the Perth and Kinross council area and all of the Stirling council area.
