Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will tonight try and persuade undecided voters in Aberdeenshire that Scotland has a better future as an independent country.
The SNP MSP is the principle speaker at a meeting in the Kintore Arms Hotel in Inverurie between 7-8.30pm and will answer questions from members of the audience.
Last night Ms Sturgeon, deputy leader of the SNP, said: “All across Scotland, people are engaging with the debate on the future of Scotland as never before.
“They rightly want to know what a ‘yes’ vote will mean for them and the gains it will bring, and meetings such as this are the perfect way for people to learn more.
“A ‘yes’ vote in September is about giving Scotland the opportunity to make our own choices on the issues that affect us.
“Like choosing to prioritise transforming childcare provision in Scotland ahead of wasting billions on weapons of mass destruction, as Westminster wants to do.”
SNP Inverurie councillor Hamish Vernal said the MSP was recognised as one of the “most passionate, persuasive and engaging” political figures in Scotland.
“There are few politicians able to make a better case why Scotland should have the full powers of independence and the positive difference it could make to families, communities and businesses,” he added.
“That’s why we’re thrilled to be able to welcome her to Inverurie to hear her make the positive case for a ‘yes’ vote.
“The meeting is a public meeting – free of charge – and is genuinely open to all who want to come along and hear a political leader at the very top of her game make the case for the ‘yes’ vote for which she has campaigned all her life.”
