Scotland’s voters will elect new MSPs to Holyrood on 6 May.

There's less than a week to go before voting begins in the Scottish Parliament election 2021, as voters prepare to elect a fresh batch of MSPs to Holyrood on 6 May.

In this election, the electorate will be given two votes, one to choose their constituency MSP and another where they choose a party from the regional list.

The Radio 4 Today programme hears from Nicola Sturgeon MSP, the leader of the SNP; Anas Sarwar MSP, leader of the Scottish Labour Party; Willie Rennie MSP, leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats; Lorna Slater, co-leader of the Scottish Greens; Douglas Ross, leader of the Scottish Conservative Party; and Alex Salmond, leader of the Alba Party.
