"I first formally met Humza during a debate around Scottish Independence in my school, which Humza going head-to-head with Johann Lamont. Not only did he come across as an eloquent, passionate and humbled politician, but he resonated with the likes of the young people in Pollok. Witty, humorous
and light-hearted, Humza left us impressed and much more engaged with politics. We need more politicians like him. An individual who is not only a talented statesperson, but a grounded and relatable guy, someone you could strike up a conversation with.
A vote for the SNP is a vote for change, not artificial change behind a smokescreen. Change that will help better the lives of those who live in the Pollok constituency and throughout Scotland. I will be placing my trust and support into Humza, a man who will challenge the unnecessary pain of austerity and work tirelessly for Pollok, and make sure the needs of his constituents are at the heart of his work as an MSP."
Chris Stephens MP
"I know how hard Humza has worked over the last four years as MSP for Glasgow. Pollok constituency needs that hard work and dedication on their behalf. He will be the outstanding candidate for the SNP in the area."
"Humza Yousaf is a hard working, motivated, determined and committed individual whom I had the pleasure of working with during the General Election 2015 campaign. Throughout the campaign I was very encouraged by his strong political and social beliefs and I have seen first-hand the strong voice he provides for the community and how he interacts and engages with constituents. Humza has a strong proven track record in standing up for the decisions that effect all of us in our everyday lives. Humza’s main attribute is his passion about
fairness and social justice for all, regardless of background. Being a constituent of Glasgow Pollok, I support Humza’s candidacy and hope that for my family, my children’s future and my community, that he is successful."

We can be assured that he will bring about the change and support this community needs. I look forward to seeing the positive impact he brings to our area”
"Humza is one of the hardest working politicians you are likely to meet. He has a desire to continuously seek and promote policies that benefit the people of Glasgow, as well as being a strong voice for Scotland across the UK, Europe and beyond. As someone who stays in Pollok I
can think of no one I would rather have as our SNP candidate for next years Holyrood elections."
"Since our previous Scottish Parliament election Humza has shown what an asset he has been not only for Scotland but for Glasgow. Humza played an important role for our branch especially in our successful
Westminster campaign, Humza was active in our extremely successful door canvassing and leafleting campaigns which gave the voters of Glasgow south west a visible party presence listening to what they had to say. Humza knows this constituency well he is active in our community and I am proud to say I am supporting Humza Yousaf to be our candidate for Glasgow pollok."
"At every election, Humza rolls his sleeves up and gets out on the doors. To win in 2016 and beyond we need to chap every door and speak to every vote - and I know a campaign team with Humza as the candidate will do just that across Pollok."
"Humza is a great candidate for the Pollok area. He is hardworking and works well with all the activists.
I have no doubt that Humza will make a great representative for the people of Pollok"
One thing that stands out is the relationship that Humza has built with my two children Ellie and Olivia he went out his way to build a rapport with the kids and that sums Humza up a person always makes the time for people and seeing the way Ellie and Olivia get excited when they see Humza is heart warming even when they don't see him they are always asking for him they adore him and that's down to Humza for taking the time to meet the kids and chat with them.”
“I am delighted to have learned of humzas intention to stand as the snp candidate for Glasgow Pollok in the upcoming Holyrood elections as knowing Humza personally I know how hard he works and how much the constituency means to him and I know he will put his heart and soul into making sure Pollok always gets the best deal.

"Humza Yousaf is a very hard working local MSP, and although he is a Scottish Government minister he still devotes plenty of time to local groups and constituents. He is knowledgeable about important local issues as well as becoming an important player on the international stage. Humza is popular with young and old and can communicate with people at any level. As a local activist, I have found Humza to be a thoroughly decent, moral and socially committed young man with a genuine interest in helping people."
