Scottish independence party’s majority hopes hang in balance

EDINBURGH, May 8: The Scottish National Party hoped a second day of vote-counting Saturday would bring it a slim majority in the devolved parliament while Prime Minister Boris Johnson decried its plan for an independence referendum.
The UK voted in a series of local and regional polls on "Super Thursday" in its first major vote since Brexit and the  pandemic.
Johnson's Conservative Party performed strongly in England and claimed a traditional Labour seat in a parliamentary by-election. But the focus remained on Scotland, where a vote for the devolved parliament in Edinburgh tested public support for the SNP's plan to hold a fresh referendum on independence that could reshape the UK.    -AFP
