Scotland’s Case: Towards Second Referendum on Independence?

Scotland's Case: Towards Second Referendum on Independence?

Rome, 7 May (askanews) – “I will ask for your opinion, and no one else’s, for a referendum on independence to be held in the first part of the legislature.” Scotland’s Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been repeating this for months: if his SNP, the Scottish Nationalist Party, wins today’s local election, it will seek a second referendum for independence from the United Kingdom, the second to secede after the first referendum in 2014 Chance, when NO won with 55%. But Brexit has since taken place, which has been rejected by more than 60% of Scots. The Nationalist Party’s goal is to return to Europe, it is a regional vote, but for Scotland it is a political election: the next prime minister will be out of the election and the real question is whether Sturgeon will be able to get an absolute majority of the two men. The first, Anas Sarwar, is a Scottish Labor Party candidate, and is trying his best to capture a large share of the Northern vote. Gordon Brown, Scottish and former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom also stepped into the fray for campaigning. Of national and local politics. But Labor remains vigilant on the burning issue of independence. The third contender is conservative Douglas Ross, who apparently opposes a referendum which, he says, would be “a distraction”. Consultation must be authorized by London. Where conservative Premier Boris Johnson has already announced that in 2014 the issue was closed once and for all. The victorious victory of the nationalists, however, would put them under pressure. You vote until 10 o’clock in Italian time, but Kovid, due to counting, will start tomorrow and definite results may come on Saturday.
