Sturgeon To Outline Plans For Scottish Independence Referendum

SCOTLAND

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will outline plans to hold a second independence referendum later on Tuesday, BBC reports.

  • Sturgeon will make a statement on the matter in the Scottish Parliament around 14:00 BST.
  • She is expected to express her intention to hold the vote in October 2023, no matter if Westminster agrees to her plan.
  • The UK government has repeatedly pushed back against the idea and made it clear it would not give its consent.
  • The Institute for Government noted that if the Scottish Parliament passes a referendum bill, the UK government would likely challenge it in the Supreme Court.
  • In the 2014 referendum on Scottish independence, the "No" side won with 55.3% voting against separation from the rest of the UK.
