Scottish leader faces battle for survival after ending power-sharing deal over climate change clash

Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — Scotland’s leader is facing a potential battle for survival after ending a three-year power-sharing agreement with the Scottish Green Party following a clash over climate change policies. First Minister Humza Yousaf of the Scottish National Party informed the leaders of the much smaller Greens on Thursday that he was terminating the power-sharing agreement. The decision means the SNP no longer has a majority in the Scottish Parliament. The Scottish Conservatives said they will put forward a vote of no confidence in the first minister next week. Scotland could be on course for an early election if he loses. The Greens said they will be voting against Yousaf.
