Greens surge ahead of Labour, Tories and Lib Dems

The Scottish Greens have surged ahead of Labour, Tories and Lib Dems in the race for the European Parliament, according to the latest YouGov poll.

The poll shows that Scotland would elect its first Green MEP while the Tories and Lib Dems would miss out.

Alison Johnstone MSP said:

“These are the most important EU elections ever and the polling shows that the people of Scotland look likely to elect our first Green MEP.

“People know that if they want a MEP who will fight to keep Scotland at the heart of Europe, propose the serious actions needed to tackle the climate emergency and offer hope over hate, then they should vote Green on Thursday.

“As positive as this poll is, we’re taking nothing for granted and will keep talking to voters up and down the country until the polls close.”
