The SNP formally launched its campaign for the Glenrothes by-election today.
The party’s candidate for the November 6 ballot is Peter Grant, the leader of SNP-controlled Fife council.
He will call for the political focus to switch from bailing out the banks to easing ever-tighter family budgets.
First Minister Alex Salmond joined Mr Grant on a visit to a local paper maker which is leading the way in adopting renewable energy.
