ALBA Launch Petition To Scrap Monarchy
ALBA PARTY are continuing their campaign for an independent Scotland to have an elected head of state.
The pro-independence party have today launched a petition as they aim to build support on the issue as King Charles visits Scotland to infer City status Dunfermline.
At their inaugural Party Conference, last year, Alba members approved a position that after the reign of Queen Elizabeth, Scotland should become a republic with an elected head of state.
Last month, as MPs queued up to swear an oath of allegiance to King Charles iii Alba’s MPs refused to do so at Westminster.
The petition states “ Queen Elizabeth II was respected across Scotland, the UK and the world by many. However, Alba Party oppose the institution of Monarchy and believe that an independent Scotland should be a republic with a written constitution.”
It goes on to state “ Sign our petition today to show your support for democracy, and the end of Monarchy in Scotland.”
Commenting an Alba Party Spokesperson said:
“In keeping with Scottish constitutional tradition ALBA Party adhere to the principle that it is the people that are sovereign. Our position is that Scotland should now move to an elected head of state with similar powers to the Uachtarán na hÉireann.
ALBA firmly stands for Scotland and our priority is to ensure the people of Scotland have the freedom to make this choice soon, as an independent country."
