Scottish Greens confirm they will vote against Humza Yousaf in no confidence motion

First minister Humza Yousaf’s political future hangs by a thread after the Scottish Greens said they would vote against him in a motion of no confidence.

The SNP leader dramatically brought the powersharing deal to an end on Thursday morning (25 April), angering the smaller pro-independence party’s leaders who accused him of “political cowardice”.

At a short press conference, co-leaders Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater confirmed the decision to vote against Mr Yousaf.

The Bute House Agreement gave the SNP-led government a majority at Holyrood but it came under strain in recent days after the Greens said they would put the future of the deal to a vote by their members.
