Humza Yousaf: Leader of Scotland

How did he get elected? Very bizarre. I think it was fraud and interference, and he was installed by a bad actor.

Is that serious question OP?

The election took place a year ago after Nicola Sturgeon resigned, just before her house was raided by police and she and her husband were questioned over fraud.

In the leadership contest to elect a successor only SNP members got to vote - not the general public. The entire party machinery and party establishment supported Yousaf as the continuity candidate and they briefed obsessively about his opponent Kate Forbes and her religious views.

Despite that Yousaf only got 52% of final votes and Kate Forbes got 48%.

The Scots are leftists and you know what that means in this day and age regarding all that. Don't look for conspiracies when simple explanations will do.
