Scottish Parliament[edit]

In UK parliamentary elections, the NF has only ever contested 3 constituencies: Glasgow Govan (October 1974), Glasgow Pollok (1979) and the 1980 Glasgow Central by-election.

The NF stood for the first time ever in the 2011 Scottish Parliamentary elections by fielding 6 candidates- 1 for the North East region and 5 (3 of whom stood for the North East region too) for the constituencies. It failed to save any deposits or win any seats and achieved between 0.8% and 1.6% of the vote in the constituencies it contested (0.08% of the nationwide vote).
