ELECTION: SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT SET FOR SUPERMAJORITY
7TH POLL SHOWS ALEX SALMOND’S ALBA SET TO WIN SEATS
The SNP is heading for a fourth term in office in Thursday’s Holyrood election with Alex Salmond’s ALBA Party helping to deliver to Holyrood a pro-independence “supermajority” of between 25 and 29 seats.
The latest polls by Panelbase for the Sunday Times and BMG for the Sunday Herald sees the SNP set to win an outright majority in its own right and represent the 6th and 7th polls of the campaign to show Salmond’s newly formed ALBA winning representation to the Scottish Parliament.
Neither poll projects the SNP to win any regional list seats whatsoever underlining the ALBA argument that SNP list votes are wasted
ALBA wants the Scottish Parliament, with its supermajority for independence, to instruct the Scottish Government to commence independence negotiations with the UK Government within the first week after Election Day.
Commenting Alex Salmond said:
“ALBA is rising. Our activists are campaigning hard across Scotland and we are confident that as the only party injecting urgency into the independence cause during this election, our message is gaining ground. Nicola Sturgeon is simply wrong to suggest delay yet again in the move for independence. In reality independence is essential to the reconstruction of the Scottish economy post pandemic.An SNP regional list vote is a wasted vote across Scotland and they are set to win zero list seats on Thursday. It is now vital that to ensure abig Supermajority,with independence supporters giving the SNP their constituency vote but backing ALBA on the list. Today’s polls show that the independence supporting MSPs could potentially reach 80 or even more.Once the people of Scotland have spoken on Thursday no British Prime Minister will be able to stand in our way, if we make independence a priority for the here and now, not the hereafter”.
