Scottish Conservatives force Humza Yousaf to resign

The Scottish Conservative Vote of No Confidence in Humza Yousaf has forced him to quit.

The SNP leader is to officially announce his resignation later today following Douglas Ross lodging the motion on Thursday.

The Scottish Conservative confidence vote had already gained the support of the Greens, Lib Dems and Labour.

Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross said: “The Scottish Conservatives have delivered on our promise to be a strong opposition to Humza Yousaf and the SNP. 

“We have forced Humza Yousaf out of office for repeatedly failing Scotland. Faced with our Vote of No Confidence, the SNP leader has quit rather than face a humiliating defeat.

“As he leaves office, on a personal level, I wish Humza Yousaf and his family well. 

“But we cannot forgive the damage he did to families and households across Scotland by raising taxes, letting NHS waiting lists spiral and attacking free speech. 

“The next First Minister must abandon the nationalist obsession with independence and focus solely on Scotland's top priorities, such as creating jobs and improving our ailing public services.

“Scottish people cannot afford another SNP First Minister focused solely on separating Scotland.

“Humza Yousaf is gone but the SNP remains – and the power to change that is in the hands of Scotland’s voters. Now that we have forced Humza Yousaf out of office, we are asking voters to help us beat the SNP in seats up and down Scotland at the next General Election.”
