With Labour in decline and the SNP lacking a constructive challenge, it's never been more important to vote Green. Patrick Harvie

Patrick Harvie, co-convener of the Scottish Greens, will today (4 May) launch the party's final push for votes on the last day of campaigning in the Holyrood election.

Harvie will join Lothian candidates Alison Johnstone and Andy Wightman at the "Green Tardis" on Leith Walk in Edinburgh, a former police box decorated by indyref artist Stewart Bremner.

At lunchtime Harvie and fellow Glasgow MSP candidate Zara Kitson will visit the Fred Paton Day Centre in the city to highlight the Greens' policies on social care, including a Living Wage Plus for care workers and a rise in the unpaid carer's allowance to £93. The day centre is in the Kelvin constituency, where Patrick aims to become the first Green constituency MSP.

In the North East, Scottish Greens co-convener Maggie Chapman will be speaking to voters outside Aberdeen University at lunchtime, and at the city's bus and railway stations at teatime.

In the South of Scotland, MSP candidate Sarah Beattie Smith will be speaking to voters in Lanark in the morning, Kelso at lunchtime and North Berwick at teatime.

In Central Scotland, MSP candidate Kirsten Robb will be out and about meeting voters in East Kilbride.

In the Highlands, MSP candidate John Finnie will be campaigning in Inverness city centre.

In the West, MSP candidate Ross Greer will be speaking to voters in Westerton in East Dunbartonshire.

In Mid Scotland and Fife region, MSP candidate Mark Ruskell will be campaigning in Bannockburn.

Patrick Harvie will also take part in an online Q&A session on the Scottish Greens' Facebook page from 7 pm.

Patrick said:

"This has been the biggest Green campaign to date and our teams of campaigners throughout Scotland are working hard to win every crucial vote. With Labour in decline and the SNP lacking a constructive challenge, it's never been more important to vote Green.

"Our aim is Green representation for every region of Scotland. Voters across the country are telling us they are considering how best to use their two votes. By casting a regional vote for the Scottish Greens, people can be sure of bringing new voices into parliament to champion the bold ideas our country needs."
