Sturgeon: I have 'no intentions' of working with Salmond

Nicola Sturgeon has said she has "no intentions" of working directly with Alex Salmond in her push for Scottish independence.

The first minister and SNP leader unveiled her party's "transformational" manifesto on Thursday but said she could go further if Scotland was independent.

In order for the first minister to take Scotland on a path away from the UK, she would need to achieve a pro-independence majority within the Scottish parliament.

She told ITV News that she would not directly work with Alex Salmond, ex-first minister and leader of the pro-independence Alba party, to achieve this.

Alex Salmond: Alba’s election performance was ‘creditable’

Former first minister Alex Salmond has insisted his new Alba Party has put in a “creditable performance” in the Holyrood election – despite conceding they are likely to see no MSPs returned. The pro-independence party, which launched at the start of the Holyrood campaign, had been fighting on the regional list section of the ballot, with the declared aim of winning an independence “supermajority”. But while list votes are still be counted, he said his new party looked set to fall short of the amount needed to pick up seats.
