You will be aware that following the resignation of Councillor Bill Mason there is now a vacancy in the Clackmannanshire East Ward.
Under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 the returning officer is required to fill the vacancy within three months of it occurring. A by-election was planned for the 19 March 2020, however due to concerns around public health the decision was taken to suspend it.
Taking into consideration the current public health advice around the control of Coronavirus, the Returning Officer’s proposal is to hold the by-election on 19 November 2020.
There will be further reviews of the situation as we approach the date to ensure that the by-election can be held while protecting the health of voters, staff, candidates and other stakeholders.
A further postponement is possible, but the intention is to fill the vacancy as soon as it is practicable.
