amid Independence polling strength
The ALBA Party has welcomed the findings of Survation polling, pointing to a political
breakthrough for ALBA. The poll commissioned by the strategic advisory company
True North also shows independence support rising to 48 percent across Scotland.
The ALBA Party Chair Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh said;
“This is the third opinion survey in a month which shows ALBA on course to win seats in the Scottish Parliament and it is the first time that the Party has registered in a Survation Poll.
The survey places us at 3 percent across the country but at a breakthrough 6 percent in the YES city of Glasgow where independence support is now measured at almost 60 percent. That is a great boost in the wake of the mighty AUOB rally at Glasgow Green last Saturday.
The ALBA Party move into our Conference in Inverness on Saturday with a real spring in our step. We are the party with the plan to get the independence cause moving forward, and back once more on the front foot.
The Survation poll shows yet again that while the SNP may be in trouble, support for independence is strong and rising. The ALBA Party calls for the Independence Movement to take leadership of the campaign, independent from any political party, and for the independence parties to unite under one banner at next year’s Westminster elections are gathering strength and will get a full airing at our Conference in the Highland capital.”
