Statement on the resignation of Kezia Dugdale

The Campaign for Socialism would like to extend our gratitude to Kezia Dugdale for taking on the difficult task of leadership of the Scottish Labour Party at one of the most challenging times in our history, and we look forward to working with her in the future to deliver a Labour government in Scotland.

The party must now look to the future and towards the exciting and engaging politics that Jeremy Corbyn's election as UK leader has delivered. The radical and transformational manifesto of For the Many, Not the Few offers a blueprint for the kind of socialist politics that can revitalise Scotland and bring people back to Labour who have abandoned us in recent years.

To achieve that our next leader must work closely with Jeremy Corbyn and build upon the remarkable gains of the General Election in June.
