SNP delegates have backed Humza Yousaf’s plan to use the next general election result to push for a second independence referendum.

An amended version of the strategy was voted through overwhelmingly at the party’s annual conference being held in Aberdeen.

It is based on winning a majority of Scottish seats, at least 29.

This would provide a mandate for another referendum, according to the proposals.

Under the agreed strategy, if the SNP wins the majority of seats in Scotland in the next general election, it will demand the powers to hold a referendum are transferred to the Scottish Parliament.

Alternatively, the strategy said the party should consider using the 2026 Scottish Parliament election as a de facto referendum.
