Hamza Yusuf, a Scotsman born in Pakistan, has resigned from the post of First Minister of Scotland.

In his statement, Hamza Yusuf said he will continue to perform his duties until a new prime minister is elected.

British media say Hamza Yusuf is under pressure to resign after the joint power deal with the Scottish Green Party expired last week.

Hamza Yusuf also faced a motion of no confidence from the Scottish Labor Party this week, as well as the Green Party.

The leader of the Scottish National Party, Hamza Yusuf, rejected the possibility of a coalition with the pro-independence Alba Party.

It should be noted that Hamza Yusuf took up the position of Prime Minister in March 2023.

Hamza Yusuf was the first Scot from Pakistan to hold the position of Prime Minister of Scotland.

According to media reports, before becoming prime minister, Hamza Yusuf was also appointed minister of health and justice.
