The following announcement by the Presiding Officer was originally published on Friday 7 January:

I have been informed by Mr Keith Raffan of his resignation as a Member of the Scottish Parliament. Under Rule 1.5.4 of the Standing Orders I have determined that the date of the vacancy is 7 January 2005.

As required by Article 83(2) of the Scottish Parliament (Elections etc.) Order 2002 I have sent a notice to the returning officer for Mid-Scotland and Fife region informing him of the vacancy so that he may ascertain the name of the person to fill the vacancy in accordance with Section 10 of the Scotland Act 1998, as modified by Article 84 of the Scottish Parliament (Elections etc.) Order 2002.
