100 DAYS: SNP pledge to keep Scotland moving forward

Written by


 With 100 days to go until the Scottish Parliament election approaching, the Scottish National Party has pledged to keep Scotland moving forward as John Swinney sets out how the party will campaign on its strong record, positive vision, and credible commitments to the people of Scotland.

Writing for today's Independent on Sunday, John Swinney MSP, Deputy First Minister of Scotland and the SNP election campaign director, said;

“Thursday 5th May is the date when all of Scotland decides who we want to lead our country for the next five years in Government and who we want as our First Minister.

“Tomorrow marks 100 days of campaigning in which the Scottish National Party will make clear that we stand proud on our record, and clear on our commitment.

“Over the next 100 days we will set out – in clear, positive and ambitious terms – how we will build on our achievements to keep Scotland moving forward and unlock even more of our country’s vast potential.

"We are literally building for the future. We have exceeded our five year target to deliver 30,000 affordable homes and set out our commitment to go even further with 50,000 more affordable homes over the next parliament.  

"We’ve bolstered the NHS budget to record levels, with record numbers of staff. We have reformed our police service with crime rates showing a 41-year low.

"We have boosted Scotland’s economy by getting people into work. Figures published this week show employment in Scotland at a record high, outperforming the rest of the UK, with youth unemployment at its lowest level since 2006. 

“There has never been a bigger, more ambitious programme of improvements across Scotland.

"Our most transformational investment in the next parliament will be in education. We’ll almost double current provision of government funded early learning and childcare and right through to college and university level we are determined to deliver further achievement for Scotland.

"We will spend the next 100 days leading an ambitious, national debate about how to keep Scotland moving forward through progressive policies. "Our mission could not be clearer – to earn the right on our record and our commitment to serve an unprecedented third term as Scotland’s government."
