Continued success in by-elections and the first election of a Liberal Democrat Member of the European Parliament in 1994 were overshadowed by the revival of the Labour Party under Tony Blair, prompting renewed talk of the Liberal Democrats supporting Labour in a future “hung” parliament.
In the ballot of Liberal Democrat members that was held in August 1999 to choose his successor, Charles Kennedy (MP for Ross, Skye, and Inverness West between 1983 and 2005, and for the new constituency of Ross, Skye, and Lochaber from 2005) was elected as the new leader.
At the 2004 elections to the European Parliament the Liberal Democrats increased their national share of the vote from 12.6 per cent in the 1999 election to 14.9 per cent, and saw their representation rise from 10 to 12 MEPs, although they finished in fourth place behind the Eurosceptic United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP).
