Angus MacKay (born 1964) is a Scottish Labour Party politician who served as Minister for Finance and Local Government from 2000 to 2001. He was the Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) for the Edinburgh South constituency from 1999 to 2003.
MacKay was born in 1964 in Edinburgh. He was educated at St Augustine's High School and graduated with a degree in Politics and Modern History from the University of Edinburgh. He was elected to City of Edinburgh Council in 1995 before being elected to the Scottish Parliament for Edinburgh South at the 1999 Scottish Parliament election.
MacKay was made a deputy minister in the first Scottish Executive, deputising for Minister for Justice Jim Wallace. After the death of Donald Dewar in 2000, he was campaign manager for Henry McLeish who went on to succeed Dewar as First Minister. McLeish appointed MacKay as Minister of Finance and Local Government, replacing Jack McConnell.
When McLeish resigned in 2001, McConnell was elected as his replacement unopposed. In McConnell's first cabinet reshuffle, MacKay was sacked from the Executive.
In the 2003 Scottish Parliament election, MacKay was not re-elected after being defeated by the Liberal Democrat candidate Mike Pringle.
