Hamza Haroun Youssef was elected to lead the party, succeeding the one who stepped down on February 15 from her position, which she held for more than 8 years, and she is “Nicola Sturgeon”, who remained in the position until Youssef submitted today, Monday, with a rate of 52.1%, with which he obtained 26,032 votes for the Minister of Finance, Kate Forbes, and with the victory, Youssef, who was Minister of Health in the Scottish local government, became the first Muslim to head a major political party in Britain, and to hold the position of First Minister in Scotland, which has a population of more than 5 million and 500 thousand.

“We will be the generation that will achieve the independence of Scotland,” Youssef said in his victory speech, according to several British media outlets. He stressed that the Scots “need independence from now on, more than ever.” But a spokesman for the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, confirmed that Sunak is looking forward to working with the new leader of the Scottish National Party, “but rejects his call for a new referendum on independence,” adding that the Scots and all Britons hope that the politicians “focus on the issues that concern them more than Anything else, including reducing inflation and addressing the high standard of living and the backlog of hospital work,” as he put it.
