Commenting on the statement from First Minister Alex Salmond, Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford said:
"Alex has represented the interests of the people of Banff & Buchan, and East Aberdeenshire without fear or favour. Anyone who knows Alex, knows his extraordinary willingness to make time for his constituents, his determination to improve the lives of our people, and his desire to build a better future for Scotland.
“Alex’s departure as First Minister leaves Scotland with unfinished business in terms of the new powers promised to our parliament, but the seeds of hope and expectation he has helped to plant in the hearts and minds of the people of our country will flourish in the years to come, and will make Scotland a better place for all of us.”
