Alex Salmond stated during the launch of the Alba Party ahead of the Scottish Parliamentary May 2021 election that Scotland must make independence a priority. The former First Minister of Scotland added that Westminster will “crumble” if faced with a supermajority of parties campaigning for independence in Holyrood.
Mr Salmond said: “Be clear if we do not make it our [priority], Boris Johnson will certainly not make it his.
“With an independence super majority resistance from Westminster to Scotland’s renewed claim of right will crumble.”
“Scotland’s Parliament and our community of the realm will speak in a voice louder, more united, more instant than it ever has done before.”
Mr Salmond also revealed that he will be voting for Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP in the May 2021 election.
The former SNP leader said: “The key to all of that is to elect a maximum number of independence supporting MSPs.
“So I will be voting SNP in my constituency vote for that reason, I know that tens of thousands of SNP supporters are going to vote for Alba on the list for exactly the same reason because it is in the Scottish national interest to do so.”
Mr Salmond added that he wants the Scottish Government to make moves towards Scottish independence from “week one” after the election on May 6, 2021.
He said: “Deliver that super majority and Parliament then issues a clear and unmistakable instruction to the Scottish Government to open negotiations with Whitehall on independence.
