WHAT a wild few days it has been for us at National HQ.

Just over a week ago we were wondering which of our new series ideas we should launch over the summer. Now here we are – basically reorganising our lives for the next five weeks to ensure the most informative, in-depth coverage we can provide. We're going to make this our best election reporting yet.

We know how frustrating an election can be when you primarily see London-centric journalism in broadcast and social media. 

As Scotland's only pro-independence daily paper, we're always going to give you the facts about what matters to people here. We don't want to conflate between reserved and devolved issues. 

So, here's what you can expect from The National between now and July 4:


  • Daily profiles of every single Scottish constituency, giving you the key facts on the area, who the contenders are and the local issues coming up on the doorsteps. 
  • Special features on the major target seats everyone's talking about, featuring interviews with candidates, vox pops from residents and fact-files on the history of the seat.
  • Special editions of the Holyrood Weekly podcast, including one this week. We'll be speaking with popular political figures who'll no longer be in Westminster after this summer, and then taking you inside the count on election night to give you unmissable insight into the atmosphere.
  • Regular livestreams with our editor and political reporters who've been on the campaign trail, talking you through the big debates of the day. Watch on Facebook, Twitter/X or YouTube, and drop us a question!
  • Exclusive interviews between political party leaders and some of our most popular contributors and journalists.
  • Economics-focused interviews with Richard Murphy speaking to financial spokespeople for the main pro-independence parties.
  • Live blogs covering all the updates on the biggest news days, including overnight on July 4 and well into July 5.
  • Live analysis of the major TV debates, plus opportunities for our subscribers to have their say.
  • Innovative features like interactive maps showcasing the candidates in your area, and poll trackers leading up to voting day.
  • Twice-weekly FREE General Election newsletter, sent straight to your inbox and covering everything you need to know.
  • Shareable clips from the campaign trail on Instagram, TikTok, Threads and more 
  • PLUS: All the excellent exclusive stories and commentary you'd expect from The National.

We'll have lots more to tell you about soon, but this is what you can look forward to for now. 

You can find all of our General Election coverage on the tab on our website, simply titled "General Election".
