Do citizens of the UK vote for Prime Minister or do the members of Parliament vote for Prime Minister?

I think the citizens of Scotland can vote for the Scottish National Party. Does it then support Johnson?

@gollum,
In the UK we have what is known as the Westminster system. We can only vote for our own MP. The MPs then choose the prime minister who is usually the leader of the party with a majority of MPs.

In reality we know who will be prime minister when we vote for our own MP. The Conservatives have a majority, all other parties are in opposition including the SNP. No, the SNP does not support Johnson, at all.

@izzythepush,
izzythepush-

Thank you.

Does the SNP offer candidates in the UK "nations" other than Scotland (i.e., England, N. Ireland, Wales)?

@gollum,
The Scottish National Party has only ever fielded candidates in Scotland.

@gollum,
There's not much of an appetite for Scottish independence in the rest of the UK. Northern Ireland parties are either Republican or Unionist so mainstream UK parties have no chance. The Labour Party doesn't even stand as the Republican SDLP usually takes the Labour whip. In Wales it's Plaid Cymru, the Welsh nationalists.
