Scottish Parliament Election coverage starts tonight!

Tonight our first look at the Scottish constituencies will go up. It's a little later than initially planned so expect a flurry of activity on that front for the next few weeks! The election is just five weeks tomorrow and opinion polling is suggesting the race to become First Minister is very tight, and almost certainly won't be resolved on the night.

We will be following the same format as the Welsh 'Look @s' with two posts on each region's constituencies to be followed by a discussion on the potential list permeations. To complicate matters, Scotland elects seven 'top-up' MSPs compared to just four in Wales and candidates are permitted to run in a constituency as well as on the regional list. In light of this we'll try to make the regional posts as easy to follow as possible…!

So look out for the Islands' constituencies which, will be posted in around an hour.
