Four candidates only?

All the Holyrood constituencies have their candidates nominated now - thought it pretty noteworthy that there are only 4 main-Party candidates in every one of the 6 seats, with the exception of one additional Independent in Edinburgh West. Quite a change from 2003.

That said, there does appear to be a record number on the Lothian List side of the ballot paper - some 23!

... and Edinburgh Central has 4 female candidates - wonder if it's the only such constituency in Scotland ... I suspect it may be?

Coatbridge & Chryston seems to have 5 women (Eleine, Frances, Doreen, Julie and Gallie) + a Tory man ruining the all female picture

Thanks for the comment.

Originating from Airdrie myself (I know, it explains a lot); I suspect that the Tory male won't win in Coatbridge ;-))

So, a definite female MSP there then I'll assume ...
