Ruth Davidson pledges to stay on after election
RUTH Davidson has insisted she will stay on as Scottish Conservative leader if the party does not succeed in beating Labour into second place in the Holyrood election.
The Tories have set their sights on becoming the official opposition in the Scottish Parliament after May as Kezia Dugdale’s party struggles to regain support.
Ms Davidson told the BBC’s Sunday Politics Scotland programme: “Absolutely. I’m the leader of this party until the members of this party wish me to no longer be the leader.
“I’ve got a united team behind me, we’re going into this election with our tails up, we know exactly what we’re trying to do. We’ve set the bar high – our best ever result across Scotland, we’re on course to hit it.”
