More than 26,000 people have joined the SNP since the referendum, doubling the amount of members the party had before the historic vote last week.
At 5pm on Thursday, September 18, there were 25,642 SNP members which rose to 52,034 at 4pm on Tuesday.
Mr Salmond said
The Scottish referendum has brought a new confidence to the people of Scotland and we should be very proud of what has been achieved.
The campaign has inspired a new wave of political engagement and has re-energised democracy here in Scotland
The benefits of this can and will flow into all aspects of Scottish life.
Almost 90% of 16-17 year olds registered to take part in the referendum, having been given the right to vote for the first time in history, and it is vital that they continue to have a say in Scotland’s future.
Mr Allard said
The people of the north-east should be proud of the empowering referendum that we have had.
More than 4.2 million people registered to vote in the referendum and I will never forget the sight of people queuing outside polling stations in Aberdeenshire to ensure their vote was cast.
Past experience has shown that promises on further powers are quickly forgotten when Westminster parties get what they want so we must push for clarity on their proposals for Scotland.
It is only with this clarity that we can move forward and work to get the best possible for Scotland.
