Nicola Sturgeon's to-do list after election victory
Glenn Campbell
BBC Scotland Political Editor
Having secured a fourth term in power for the SNP, Nicola Sturgeon is not short of things to do as first minister.
She has to form a government - that could be another SNP-only administration, unless she wants to explore a more formal arrangement with the independence-supporting Greens to secure an outright majority.
She has to reshuffle her ministers, with four cabinet posts - including that of health secretary - needing filled as a result of retirements.
There are also important decisions that need to be taken on coronavirus - with a further easing of restrictions due on 17 May, plans to reopen international travel to consider and concern over Covid cases in Moray to address.
Ms Sturgeon has insisted that dealing with the pandemic and its aftermath will be her immediate priority - although clearly she intends to press the case for another independence referendum too.
There are also formalities - being sworn in with the other 128 MSPs on Thursday, before putting herself forward in parliament for re-election as first minister the following week.

Sturgeon: Indyref2 a 'fundamental democratic principle'
SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon says "The people of Scotland must have the right to decide our own future when the Covid crisis has passed."
Ms Sturgeon says a referendum on independence is now "a matter of fundamental democratic principle".
The first minister says there is likely to be a larger pro-independence majority than in the last parliament.
"Both the SNP and Scottish Greens stood on a clear commitment to an independence referendum within the next parliamentary term," she says.
"And both of us made clear that the timing of a referendum should be decided by a simple majority of MSPs in the Scottish Parliament."
Ms Sturgeon said there was "no democratic justification whatsoever" for Boris Johnson to block a referendum.
"If the Tories make such an attempt, they won't be placing themselves in opposition to the SNP, they will be standing in direct opposition to the will of the Scottish people.
"They will demonstrate conclusively that the UK is not a partnership of equals and astonishingly that Westminster no longer sees it as a voluntary union of nations," she added.
"That in itself would be a most powerful argument for Scotland becoming an independent country."

Sturgeon highlights 'scale and the record breaking nature of our victory'
Nicola Sturgeon says: "Absolutely no-one would have predicted the scale and the record breaking nature of our victory at this election."
The SNP leader explains if her party wins 62 constituency seats that is 85% of the total. There is just Edinburgh North and Leith to be declared, but it is expected to be an SNP hold.
"Most of all I want to thank the people of Scotland for putting their trust in me and the SNP once again. We will work to repay that trust every day," she says.
"Wherever you are from, whatever age you are, whatever your background, and no matter who you voted for, the SNP in government is dedicated to working for you."
Her immediate and overriding task will be to keep everyone as safe as possible and guide the country back to normality and on to recovery, she adds.

Ms Sturgeon goes on to say: "I now intend to get back to work to deliver on all of what we put before the Scottish people."
She says her hope to have a second independence referendum in the first half of the parliament remains realistic, but getting through the Covid crisis has to come first.
Anyone from Westminster standing in the way of indyref2 would be standing in the way of the Scottish people, she adds.
