Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeonsaid that some UK general election They are a “democratic imperative” after the resignation of Liz Truss as prime minister.
Sturgeon claimed that the situation was a “total disaster”and that the citizens paid the price.
“I think Liz Truss’s early resignation as Prime Minister was probably inevitable from the moment she walked into Downing Street. But Liz Truss is not the problem here, she is the symptom of a much more fundamental problem: a broken Tory party? Certainly. But also a broken british political system”, Said the Scotswoman in statements to SkyNews.
“At UK level there must be a general election. It is a democratic necessity. The idea that the Tories can now rally behind a Prime Minister – any Prime Minister – let alone one who is in the public interest is to the birds [inútil]”, he added.
“That is what has to happen immediately, and of course for Scotland that does not solve the fundamental problem because Scotland’s votes do not determine the outcome of the UK general election,” he continued.
