SALMOND TO UNVEIL NEW “DECLARATION FOR SCOTLAND” AT CAMPAIGN LAUNCH
A SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT WITH A SUPERMAJORITY MUST BEGIN INDEPENDENCE NEGOTIATIONS ON WEEK ONE
ALBA Party Leader and Former First Minister Alex Salmond will today (Tuesday) launch the ALBA national campaign for the Scottish Parliament Elections on Thursday 6 May. Mr Salmond will set out the “Route to Independence” on the Anniversary of the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath and will announce a new “Declaration for Scotland”.
Speaking in advance of the launch which will take place at the Buchan Hotel, in Ellon.
Alex Salmond said:
“On week one of the Scottish Parliament elected with an Independence Supermajority, the Scottish Government should seek an instruction from the Parliament to begin Independence negotiations with the Westminster Government.
“However for that to happen people need to Vote ALBA on the list to deliver that Independence Supermajority and to allow those negotiations to begin. What will change Westminster’s mind about engaging in negotiations is the strength of the votes in Scotland and the knowledge that they are not taking on a single party, the SNP, but a Parliament representing an entire nation.”
