Both Votes SNP to Guarantee Sturgeon as First Minister

Polls in the Scotsman and the Times show that the only decisive way to guarantee an SNP government led by Nicola Sturgeon as First Minister is by giving both votes to the SNP in the election in May.

Meanwhile, Labour and the Tories continue in the battle for second place, with Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross’s approval ratings plummeting by 12 points to minus 33, and 51% of those polled saying he is doing a bad job.

SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown said that it was clear that “only the SNP has a serious plan for government, and ambitious plans for Scotland’s recovery.”

SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown said:

“These polls show this election – the most important in Scotland’s history – on a knife-edge, and reinforces that only by voting SNP on May 6th can people guarantee a majority SNP Government, led by Nicola Sturgeon as First Minister.

“It’s clear that the SNP is the only party with a serious plan for government, and ambitious plans for Scotland’s recovery.

“The SNP is taking absolutely nothing for granted at this election, every seat counts and every vote counts and we’re working harder than ever to guarantee an SNP government with the strong leadership to lead Scotland through the pandemic, kickstart our economic recovery, and improve lives across the country.

“It is clear voters want to see Nicola Sturgeon as First Minister, and the only way to guarantee that is to give both votes to the SNP on May 6th.”
