We look to the fact that Caroline Lucas did not build the foundations for a winning campaign in Brighton overnight; it took years of dedication that started back in 1997. Patrick Harvie

The Scottish Greens say they are determined to continue their "long haul" campaign to elect Scotland's first Green MP following the results of the snap General Election.

Green co-convener Patrick Harvie increased the party’s vote share in Glasgow North from 6.2 per cent to 9.7 per cent.

Patrick said:

“With just a few weeks’ notice, and without the large financial backing available to other parties, Greens can be proud of the tightly-focused campaign we ran. We look to the fact that Caroline Lucas did not build the foundations for a winning campaign in Brighton overnight; it took years of dedication that started back in 1997. We are in this for the long haul.

“Whatever the make-up of the Westminster parliament once the election results have settled, it is vital that as many progressive voices from across Scotland and the rest of the UK speak up for our social and environmental protections under threat from Brexit.”
