Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon Wants Scottish Independence Referendum Next Year

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon wants to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence next year. That reports the British newspaper The Times.


The leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) thinks the vote will take place shortly after the Scottish elections on 6 May.

“Scotland must be given a choice to choose whether to become independent. Rather in the early days of the new government than at the end of that term,” Sturgeon told local media.

A vote was also organized in 2014 when a narrow majority chose to stay with the United Kingdom.

After Brexit, which most of the Scots were against, more and more Scots seem to be in favour of independence. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson must approve an official referendum.
