When we become an independent country we will have a parliament and government just as we do now. It will take all the decisions for Scotland with MSPs elected, as today, by proportional representation.
The elections for the first parliament of an independent Scotland will take place in May 2016. The people of Scotland will be able to choose the MSPs and the government they want whether SNP, Labour, Green, Tory, SSP or Lib Dem.
All the Scottish politicians who are currently in the House of Commons will be able to stand for the Scottish Parliament, so, for example, some of the more experienced Labour politicians currently at Westminster may well be challenging to become the Scottish government. The Scottish parties will all be able to field their strongest teams.
