Commenting Lynne said:

“I am delighted to join the Alba Party. As a Councillor and the former SNP National Equalities Convener, I’m really looking forward to a positive campaign reflecting an inclusive and tolerant Scotland. Securing a Super Majority for independence in the upcoming elections is crucial in delivering the fairer independent Scotland we seek.“
