Constituency Profile

The town of Glenrothes is at the heart of this constituency. In the 1970s and 80s it became a major industrial centre for electronics and hi-tech companies. Off-shore oil industries have also been important to the local economy.

The town is the administrative capital of Fife. The constituency goes beyond the southern boundaries of Glenrothes and incorporates the more rural Thornton area.

Henry McLeish, the former first minister, was MP for the old Fife Central seat from 1987 to 2001, and became its MSP in 1999. He did not contest the seat in 2003 but it remained in Labour hands following Christine May’s win. However, the political winds of change brought in the SNP’s Tricia Marwick who won the Central Fife seat at the 2007 Holyrood election, and held it again in 2011. She retires this time, having served the fourth parliamentary term as presiding officer.
