SNP TOPS EURO POLL IN PERTH & KINROSS

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed the result of the European Elections in Perth & Kinross, an emphatic win which means the SNP is on course to send Alyn Smith, Christian Allard and Aileen McLeod to the European Parliament.  

The SNP won in every part of mainland Scotland, with the party making history by achieving the country’s biggest ever margin of victory at a European election and securing 3 MEPs.  

Commenting, Ms Cunningham said: 

“It is absolutely clear from this result that Perth & Kinross does not want Brexit and nor does the rest of Scotland.

“What a strong message this sends, the biggest European election win for any party ever seen in Scotland.  Winning 3 of the 6 available seats in Scotland is simply phenomenal. 

“This result comes after a campaign in which the SNP offered a message of hope and ambition. It is crystal clear that Scotland wants to be part of an EU that allows us to travel, work and live freely across Europe, with us registering more than twice as many votes as our nearest rivals.

“The SNP’s margin of victory, 15 percentage points ahead of the Tories, emphasises how powerful that message was.

“On top of that, parties that have firmly backed a Remain position, amassed votes that well and truly swamped the Brexit Party’s tally.

“Scotland deserves better than a Westminster system that isn’t working – it’s no wonder more and more people believe Scotland’s future should be as an independent country within the EU.”
