Scotland to Hold Referendum, Says SNP Leader
Issued on: Modified:
SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon announced that because of Brexit, she will be pushing for a referendum on Scottish independence. The aim would be to leave the UK in order to apply to join the EU as an independent country. Although Scotland will need permission from Westminster to hold the referendum, the SNP is already preparing the necessary legislation and hopes to have it in place by the end of the year.
