Scottish government narrowly avoids collapse as Hamza Yousaf resigns | Politics News


The Scottish National Party is in the process of choosing a new leader to replace outgoing First Minister Humza Yousaf following a confidence vote that kept the government intact. Yousaf’s resignation has created uncertainty within the party and raised hopes for the opposition Labour Party in upcoming elections. The SNP, once dominant in Scottish politics, is now seeking its third leader in just over a year, with potential candidates including former leader John Swinney and former rival Kate Forbes. Yousaf, a Glasgow-born Muslim, made history as Scotland’s youngest elected leader but faced challenges during his tenure, including party splits and financial controversies. Despite these challenges, Yousaf expressed gratitude for the opportunity to lead his country and pave the way for greater diversity in political leadership.
