Leader and Convener appointed

Angus Campbell was voted as Leader of the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Norman Macdonald was voted as the Convener this afternoon.

It was a close competition for the role of Convenor between Norman Macdonald (Sgir’ Uige agus Ceann a Tuath nan Loch), Norman Macleod (Sgire an Rubha) and Rae Mackenzie (Steornabhagh a Deas).

After no clear majority in the first vote the second vote was between the two Norman’s, with Mr Macdonald winning by one vote.

Angus Campbell (Steornabhagh a Deas) only faced competition from one other councillor, Donald Manford (Barraigh, Bhatarsaigh, Eririsgeigh agus Uibhist a Deas), but won the vote comfortably.
