The Scottish police recently arrested Peter Murrell, the former chief executive of the SNP and husband to the current party leader, Nicola Sturgeon, in connection with the party’s finances. Although released without charge, the investigation remains ongoing.

Intensified Scrutiny of SNP’s Leadership

The resignation of Johnston Carmichael has further compounded the series of problems confronting the SNP. Recent events have heightened scrutiny of the party’s leadership and thrown up more questions about the management of its finances.

Urgent Search for Replacement Auditor

In the wake of this development, the onus is on the SNP’s treasurer to find a suitable replacement firm to audit the party’s accounts. Swift action is required to restore confidence in the party’s financial governance and allay the concerns that have arisen from recent occurrences.

Opinions on the Matter

Donald Cameron of the Scottish Tory Party has weighed in on the matter, stating that “the recent extraordinary events have left the SNP with weighty questions to address, and the resignation of their auditors has added to the growing list of problems that require urgent attention.”
