SCOTLAND'S political parties will make their final weekend push today and tomorrow ahead of Thursday's election.

Christmas markets, Small Business Saturday and assurances over cross-party pacts on the agenda today. 

In the North East, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is touring with several SNP Westminster candidates and Finance Secretary Derek Mackay.

The SNP leader will visit Aberdeen's Christmas Market with Aberdeen North candidate Kirsty Blackman and take part in a traditional music workshop with Fergus Mutch, the candidate for Aberdeenshire West and Kincardine. 

Later, she will participate in a Christmas arts and crafts class with children alongside Gordon candidate Richard Thompson.

Sturgeon will say there are only five days left to stop another five years of Boris Johnson, and ask voters to unite around her party.

She will add: "The comments he has made and the policies he will pursue demonstrate why cannot be trusted and is unfit for office.

"Scotland cannot afford five more years of Boris Johnson. Vote SNP to escape Brexit and put Scotland's future in Scotland's hands not Boris Johnson's."

Meanwhile, interim Scottish Tory leader Jackson Carlaw will be campaigning in Moray. 

He will call on the LibDems to rule out offering their support for a post-election Labour-SNP pact. 

This morning LibDem business spokesperson Sam Gyimah said they would not offer Jeremy Corbyn their support as he leads a "hard left" party.

He added Labour's values are "diametrically opposed" to the LibDems'.

In Fife, Scottish LibDem leader Willie Rennie is in St Andrews to visit a farmers' market and discuss Scottish independence

And in Glasgow South, Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard is promoting Small Business Saturday with candidate Matt Kerr. 

Also in Glasgow, later on Saturday evening, Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell is to speak at a "Rally for Real Change".

Elsewhere, Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie will join Linlithgow and East Falkirk candidate Gillian Mackay for a demonstration outside Ineos in Grangemouth.
