Scotland to host new independence referendum
Scotland will have a new independence referendum in 2023. This was announced by the country's first minister, Nicola Sturgeon – she proposed holding a referendum on 19 October 2023. In May 2021, the nationalists won the election in Scotland, advocating the separation of the region from the UK. The preliminary results of the vote were announced on the night of Sunday, May 9. The leader of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, said that London should not interfere in the future of Scotland. Whether a new independence referendum is needed will be decided by the Scottish Parliament, not Boris Johnson's cabinet. Johnson believes that a second independence referendum should not be allowed, since in the first, which took place eight years ago, Scotland voted for unity with the UK.
