LONDON—Scotland’s former pro-independence leader, Alex Salmond, said Sunday he is going to run for a seat in the British Parliament in May’s election.

Mr. Salmond said he would contest a northeast Scotland seat for the Scottish National Party, which he led until last month.

Under Mr. Salmond, the party came close to realizing its dream of making Scotland an independent country. In a Sept. 18 referendum, 45% of voters backed independence but 55% said no.

Polls suggest the British election is too close to call, and smaller parties such as the SNP and the anti-immigration U.K. Independence Partycould end up holding significant power.

Mr. Salmond said, “With so much at stake for Scotland, I think it’s impossible to stand on the sidelines.”
