Text of notification received by the Speaker on 1 August 2023:
I refer to the Recall Petition in respect of the Rutherglen and Hamilton West Constituency, which closed at 5pm yesterday, 31 July 2023. I am now emailing to advise that the Count of signatures has been concluded and the result is as follows:—
The total number of valid signatures to the petition was 11896
The total electorate was 81,123
The threshold of 10% of electorate was 8113
The number of rejected signing sheets on the grounds of being unmarked was 37
Therefore the threshold has been met for the recall petition to be successful.
Cleland Sneddon, Petition Officer
