The Scottish Greens voted to form a power-sharing pact with the SNP, the first time the party has held office in government in the UK. The agreement will see co-leaders Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater become junior ministers after 83 per cent of members who took part backed the deal at yesterday’s extraordinary general meeting. Negotiated over the summer after the SNP fell one seat short of an overall majority in May’s election, the agreement involves a shared policy platform for the Scottish government. It includes an agreement to pursue another vote on Scottish independence before the end of 2023, if the threat of coronavirus has subsided, as well as environmental policies and a commitment to implement rent controls.
