Supreme Court to consider possible referendum on Scottish independence in October | Abroad

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who wants to steer her region back to the EU after eventual independence, has himself taken to the Supreme Court to explain the legality of the referendum if Westminster disagrees. The British government vehemently refused to allow Scots to vote again. In the coming weeks, both parties will put their arguments to court.

In the first referendum in 2014, a majority of Scots (55 per cent) still chose to remain in the UK. However, that was before Brexit, which was rejected by a clear majority (62 per cent) by the northern part of the UK. So supporters of Scottish independence hope that the new vote will have a different outcome.

Earlier, Sturgeon had already announced that he wanted to organize a new referendum on independence on October 19, 2023. If the High Court found it legally impossible to organize a referendum that was not binding by the Scottish Parliament, it wanted to make the next British parliamentary election a de facto referendum.
