Scotland – Referendum verdict – Politics

In the struggle for an independence referendum in Scotland the UK Supreme Court will make a decision next week. The Supreme Court in London will announce its verdict on November 23, the court announced on Wednesday. Scotland’s Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon wants her compatriots to vote again in October 2023 on whether their part of the country should become independent from the United Kingdom or not. So far it has been assumed that the central government in London has to agree to such a referendum. Sturgeon now wants to know from the Supreme Court whether she has the authority to hold the targeted vote without this approval.
