Supporters of Scottish independence have won the region's parliamentary elections. However, according to preliminary calculations, they will not have enough two votes to form a parliamentary count. This is reported by the вЂњBBCвЂќ.
The leader of the Scottish National Party and the first minister of the region, Nicola Sturgeon, called this victory вЂњoutstandingвЂќ. She said that for now, the country's priority is to fight the pandemic.
However, Sturgeon has promised to hold a referendum on Scottish independence soon after the crisis ends. According to her, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and other opponents of the vote have no democratic grounds for trying to block the referendum.
It is noted that the central authorities of the United Kingdom are against holding a referendum on independence in Scotland. According to the law, it is London that gives permission for such a vote.
