Salmond: Use General Election to vote for independence

ALBA Party leader Alex Salmond has urged Scots to use the General Election to vote for Scottish independence. 

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has announced today that a General Election will be held on Thursday 4th July. 

Former First Minister of Scotland and now Alba Party leader Alex Salmond says that the General Election “gives Scots the opportunity to bypass Westminster’s referendum veto by using elections to secure a mandate for independence””. 

Salmond’s Alba Party have announced, to date, that the will be fielding at least 18 candidates at the General Election. 

Commenting former First Minister and Alba Party leader Alex Salmond said: 

"ALBA has emerged as the only Party seeking an independence mandate at each and every election and, with the SNP, Greens and Tories now all in substantial disarray, we are increasing our effort for this year’s Westminster poll.

"The 4th of July is celebrated in the USA as their Independence Day but if we make the General Election about independence then in Scotland it may no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day Scotland declared to the world that we will not accept a Westminster Veto over our right to self determination and that we have voted for Scotland to be an independent country. 

"Alba Party are now the natural home for independence supporters. If we work hard then ALBA can make a big impact for independence in the coming election.”
