Scotland announces plan for independence vote in October 2023

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced plans for a second referendum to be held on Scottish independence in October next year, promising to take legal action to ensure a vote if the British government tried to block it.

Sturgeon said on Tuesday that the Scottish government, which is led by her pro-independence Scottish National Party, would publish a referendum bill later, outlining plans for the secession vote to take place on October 19, 2023.

She also said she would be writing to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for permission to hold a consultative referendum, but had already set in motion plans to get the legal authority should he block the plans.
