The Scottish Greens say some people will have “reasonable concerns” about the appointment of Kate Forbes to a senior position in John Swinney’s government. Green co-leader Lorna Slater said a change of direction from Mr Swinney’s government would lead to “disagreements” with her party. As the SNP can only count on 63 of the Scottish Parliament’s 128 voting MSPs, the First Minister will likely need to seek support from elsewhere in the chamber to pass major legislation. When Humza Yousaf ended the powersharing deal between the SNP and Scottish Greens, Ms Slater and co-leader Patrick Harvie left the government and became opposition politicians again. Ms Forbes’s views on certain social issues like equal marriage are at odds with those of the Greens.
