Steely and polished, Scotland's pro-independence First Minister Nicola Sturgeon could decide who is Britain's prime minister after May's election thanks to an extraordinary surge in support for her party.Despite the "Yes" camp losing last year's independence referendum, Sturgeon's Scottish National Party has since quadrupled its membership and could now win most parliament seats in Scotland.In an election unlikely to produce a clear winner, Sturgeon says the SNP could prop up Ed Miliband's Labour party in a minority government to keep Prime Minister David Cameron out of Downing Street on May 7 .Since 2007, the SNP has been in power in Scotland and Sturgeon, married to the party's chief executive Peter Murrell, was health minister for much of that time.When Salmond resigned after Scottish voters rejected independence, Sturgeon emerged as the only candidate to succeed him and became Scotland's first female first minister last November.
