The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Nicola Sturgeon: Scotland has ‘undeniable’ mandate for second referendum following deal with Greens” – below is their description.

Nicola Sturgeon has claimed she has an “undeniable” mandate for an independence referendum as her appointment of two Green ministers in her government was formally approved.

The First Minister said that “between us the SNP and the Greens won 72 out of 129 seats” in May’s Holyrood election after standing on a platform of demanding another vote on separating Scotland from the UK.

In a statement to MSPs, she said she had sought a cooperation agreement with the Greens to “try to do politics differently” to tackle big issues such as climate change, the recovery from coronavirus and the impact of Brexit.
