In an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, Sturgeon called on voters to back her Scottish National Party at an election on June 8 to strengthen her hand and make sure that Scotland’s voice is heard in the Brexit negotiations.

“For me this is a question of, at the end of the Brexit process, does Scotland get a choice about our future,” Sturgeon said. “At the end of the Brexit process, I believe people in Scotland should have a choice over our future.”
