THE Communist Party launched its Scottish election campaign on Wednesday night with a manifesto promising a strategy to beat Covid-19.
Candidates will be part of the party’s biggest run since the 1980s, with contenders also standing for the Welsh Senedd, Greater London Authority and various English council seats.
Daniel Lambe will stand in the Motherwell and Wishaw constituency, while Johnnie Hunter and Matthew Waddell will stand on the Glasgow and Lothians regional lists respectively.
At the manifesto launch, party representatives laid out their vision for Scotland with calls for greater devolution of powers north of the border.
Candidates also emphasised the need to push towards a zero-Covid strategy, land reforms and moves to tackle Scotland’s housing crisis.
Mr Waddell said: “Our ruling class — the capitalists, the wealthy — are always picked first.
“The Communist Party is the only party recognising who is causing this problem, whose fault it is, and how we solve it.”
