Why Alistair backs More United:
"More United's values of opportunity, democracy and a commitment to protecting the environment are the values I have been striving to deliver in serving Orkney and Shetland. I pledge to continue to stand by these values if re-elected."
About Alistair Carmichael
As MP for Orkney and Shetland, Alistair has proved over the last 16 years that he is committed to addressing local issues and serving the needs of his constituents. He’s worked to boost the development of renewable energy generation in the islands and has spoken passionately about his belief in the positive impact of the union between Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. He’s also been an active campaigner for the worldwide abolition of the death penalty.
His slim majority of just over 800 votes means he’s facing a tough fight.
