Alex Salmond could take on Sturgeon as surprise election rival – major announcement at 2pm

The former first minister will make an announcement at 2pm today, with supporters hoping he will announce his election candidacy. Mr Salmond would run as an independent candidate, having quit SNP following a fallout with its current leader Nicola Sturgeon.

Despite speculation Mr Salmond will stand as a Holyrood candidate, the statement ahead of his 2pm does not state what the announcement will be about.

If he chose to run his candidacy could split the pro-independence vote.
