Left Alliance (Scotland)

The Left Alliance are a small political party operating in Fife Scotland.

They currently have two seats on Fife council, out of a total of 78 councillors. They are William L. Clarke, who represents Ballingry and Lochore, and Alexander Maxwell, who represents Cowdenbeath Central.

They represent areas that are part of the former Fife coalfield and have in the past been held by members of the Communist Party of Great Britain and are themselves descended from that political tradition.
