A FORMER MSP has called on those leaking videos of “confidential conversations” about the SNP to “resign now”.

This comes after the Sunday Mail published a leaked video in which Nicola Sturgeon urged the SNP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to be “very careful” about suggesting the party had financial issues.

Writing on Twitter, former presiding officer and SNP MSP Tricia Marwick called on those leaking confidential conversations and videos to resign.

She said: “See the people who are leaking and spinning conversations/videos of what should be confidential conversations and decisions of the SNP should resign now.

“You have not put the interests of the SNP first. Go now. Join the groups/parties/media who hate the SNP.”

The leaked video has led to opposition parties calling for Sturgeon to be suspended from the party.

Speaking on the radio, Scottish Conservative chair Craig Hoy said: “Clearly the SNP is leaking like a sieve. They are turning in on themselves, they are fighting like rats in a sack.”

Scottish Labour’s deputy leader Jackie Baillie has also been critical of Sturgeon following the leaked video while the former SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford rejected calls for her suspension.

Marwick added: “I joined the SNP in 86. Elected to the Scottish Parliament in 99. SNP elected as a minority govt in 2007.

“We made sure we never dissented publicly. If you feel you are more important than the SNP and if you think your views matter then get a grip. I don’t want to know you.”

The NEC has already agreed to undertake a governance and transparency review within the party.

First Minister Humza Yousaf has already said that an interim report on the review will be published in June.

The party remains on the search for new auditors before a key Electoral Commission deadline in July.

Previous auditors Johnston Carmichael resigned around October of last year – a fact Yousaf only learned of after he became the party’s leader.
