Winning a majority in Glasgow Southside, Ms Sturgeon was keen to demonstrate that her constituency showed that ‘racists and fascists are not welcome’ by pointing out that Jayda Fransen only gained 46 votes in the constituency.
Jayda Fransen stood as an independent in Glasgow Southside and accused the First Minister of ‘flooding’ Scotland with immigrants.
Speaking after her victory on Friday, Ms Sturgeon said: “Yesterday, not for the first time, the constituency was targeted by far right thugs.
"That far right thug who led that confrontation got 46 votes and I am proud once again Glasgow Southside has shown the racists and the fascists that they are not welcome in Glasgow Southside and they are not welcome in Glasgow and they are not welcome anywhere in Scotland.”
During her speech, Sturgeon also said it was ‘her pleasure’ and ‘it is a privilege’ to represent the diverse constituency.
She added: “Whether you voted for me or whether you voted for one of my opponents, I will do everything to represent you to the best of my ability.”
The First Minister won the Glasgow Southside seat with 19,735 votes, compared to Labour leader Anas Sarwar’s 10,279 – a majority of 9,456.
