Scottish National Party does well in EU voteTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The results announced Monday gave one seat each to the newly formed Brexit Party, the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives.

The SNP, which favors another independence referendum for Scotland, won just over 37% of the votes cast.

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon tweeted that her party won the election "emphatically" in a rejection of Britain's plan to leave the European Union.

Nonetheless, the Brexit Party that wants an immediate break with Europe came second.

The count was slowed by the wait for results from the remote western isles of Scotland.
