LONDON (AA) - Outgoing first minister of Scotland on Thursday started her final appearance at the parliament by wishing Ramadan Mubarak to all Muslims.
Nicola Sturgeon, outgoing Scottish National Party (SNP) leader and the first minister of Scotland, attended her last First Minister's Questions (FMQs) session at the parliament.
Wishing Ramadan Mubarak to Muslim community, Sturgeon said, she is "in a very privileged position" for being from Glasgow Southside constituency, the highest proportion of Muslims living in Scotland.
"I know the holy month of Ramadan is a very special time for Muslims, and I wish them all the best during it," she added.
Early Thursday, Sturgeon said on Twitter that she would do her 286th and the last First Minister’s Questions.
Last month, she announced her resignation from the country’s top political post, as well as from the helm of the SNP.
Sturgeon, who has been in office since November 2014, is Scotland's first female first minister and also the first woman to lead any of the devolved UK administrations.
Scotland has had a devolved parliament since 1999.
Since the surprise victory of pro-Brexiters in a 2016 referendum – with most Scots voting to stay in the EU – Sturgeon has pushed for a fresh referendum on Scottish independence, but the UK’s Conservative government has said it will not give permission.
