Stevenson Praises Salmond for Delivering Huge Result for Scotland

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has paid tribute to First Minister Alex Salmond for delivering a huge result for Scotland in yesterday’s referendum and spoken of his decision to step down as SNP leader this November.

Stewart Stevenson said:

“Alex is a great team builder and a great team player, and he will be looking at what the decision that the people of Scotland made in huge numbers means for the country, and he will have put that at the forefront of the decision that he’s made today.”

“Alex has achieved an enormous amount - 3.6 million people voted for change. Both the no campaign and the yes campaign represent change, and it was almost inconceivable even a couple of months ago that Alex Salmond would have got us there.

“Alex’s capability in drawing people in and building teams has meant that he’s had a team that has delivered a huge result for Scotland.”

Earlier today in a speech at Bute House, Mr Salmond stated that he would resign at the SNP Conference in November following the referendum result, adding that it had been the privilege of his life to serve Scotland as First Minister.
