Responding to the publication of the Sunday Times/Panelbase poll, which shows the Scottish Greens on course for a record result in May, Scottish Greens co-leader Lorna Slater said:

“This welcome poll is just the latest to suggest that the Scottish Greens can return a record number of MSPs in May.

“It’s clear that the public appreciate the constructive approach to opposition adopted by the Greens which has seen us punch well above our weight, delivering for the people of Scotland.

This poll is also now the 20th in a row to demonstrate popular majority support for independence.

Lorna Slater added:

“An astonishing 20 consecutive opinion polls have now demonstrated majorities in favour of independence. Scottish Greens will go into May’s election with a clear commitment to put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands, and the people of Scotland will have their voices heard.”
