Colin Fox elected convenor of SSP

Colin Fox celebrates his victoryDelegates at the Scottish Socialist Party's annual conference have elected Colin Fox as the party's new national convenor.

The MSP for the Lothians defeated rival candidate Alan McCombes by 252 votes to 154, and succeeds Tommy Sheridan MSP who resigned from the post last year.

Looking to the future, Fox said: "The party will unite and focus on regaining the confidence of the 130,000 people who voted for us in the 2003 election.

"We will haunt new Labour on their record on the war in Iraq - and we will haunt the SNP. We are passionate about independence and both parties seem to have lost their passion."

Sheridan, who had backed Fox's campaign, said he hoped that the SSP "will now get back to what it is good at, which is fighting the Tories, fighting capitalism, fighting wars, instead of having internal squabbles."
