Biography: Colin Fox (born June 17, 1959) is the convenor of the Scottish Socialist Party, and a member for Lothian in the Scottish Parliament.
Fox lives in the Inch, Edinburgh, with his partner and two children. He co-organises the Edinburgh Mayday Festival and founded the Edinburgh People's Festival in 2002. On November 28, 2004 he announced his candidature for Convenor of the Scottish Socialist Party after the resignation of Tommy Sheridan. At one point an unopposed election seemed likely but Alan McCombes announced his candidature late in the day.
At the SSP conference on February 13, 2005 Fox was elected with 252 votes from SSP delegates; 154 voted for McCombes, 9 abstained and 1 ballot paper was spoilt.
