The United States rejects Maduro's request for Biden to lift sanctions

The Prime Minister of Scotland is reactivating the campaign for independence from the UK

SAO PAULO, SP (FOLHAPRESS) – The Prime Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, announced on Tuesday (28) that a second referendum on the country’s independence would take place in October next year. He vowed to take legal action if the British government tried to block the plan.

According to Sturgeon, the Scottish government, led by the pro-independence Scottish National Party, will release the draft referendum on October 19, 2023, the recommended date for the referendum.

He also said he would write to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson seeking permission to hold a public consultation, but said he had already begun plans to gain legal authority if he blocked the plans.

I am not prepared to allow Scottish democracy to allow Boris Johnson or the Prime Minister to be imprisoned by the Scottish people in the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday.

Voters in Scotland, with a population of about 5.5 million, rejected independence in 2014. But the country’s semi-autonomous government says the question should be left to a second referendum on Britain’s exit from the European Union, where most of Scotland are competing.

Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party strongly opposes the referendum – for the party, the issue was resolved in 2014 when 55% to 45% voted against Scots independence.

Earlier, Boris had refused to issue an order authorizing the Scottish Parliament to hold a public consultation.
