Nicola said: ” I want to thank the voters of Glasgow Southside for the trust they have placed in me.
“Many of them were constituents in my former Govan constituency and voted for me four years ago.
“Many others voted for me for the first time yesterday.
“I promise to work just as hard for people in the new areas of my constituency like Govanhill, Gorbals and Toryglen as I have worked for the constituents I have represented for the past four years.
“This election has proved that not only can we win in Glasgow but we can hold seats in Glasgow as well.
It is a triumph for positivity over negativity. Now the hard work begins.”
