Below are comments from Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson on the resignation of Kezia Dugdale as Labour leader.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said:
“Kezia deserves the thanks of her party for the tireless work she put in as leader of Scottish Labour.
“She was a tough and principled political opponent and, in challenging circumstances for her party, she showed huge determination and spirit.
“These last two years will be remembered as a time when all three of Scotland’s main political parties have been led by women, and all there on merit.
“Kezia did more than most as leader of Scottish Labour to ensure that, in future, such a thing is no longer deemed remarkable, or of note.
“I wish her well for the future.”
