Mr McDonald called it a “stunning” victory.
He said: “I want to thank my whole campaign for your contribution for what has been a stunning victory in Aberdeen Donside. I feel absolutely delighted.
“I was obviously confident of holding the seat given that we were in a very strong position but I think to hold it with a massively increased majority is for me absolutely fantastic.”
