The people of Scotland see their future within the European Union, said the first Minister.
“While final results are not yet announced, the voting showed that the people of Scotland see their future within the European Union,” she said.
She stressed that everything is now waiting for the results of the vote, but the Scots have already voted for the EU and spoke clearly.
Note, the results of the referendum on withdrawal of Britain from the EU in Scotland showed the victory of the supporters that the United Kingdom remains in the EU. Supporters of British membership in the EU has gained 1 661 191 voice, whereas for Brexit in Scotland voted 1 018 322 voters.
That is, 62% of Scottish voters voted for the fact that Britain remained in the EU.
We will remind, in last year’s referendum, Scottish voters rejected the idea of Scottish independence from Britain.
Then against the independence of Scotland voted 55% of the citizens of the country.
In April this year, the head of the Scottish government Nicola Sturgeon stated that Scotland should have the right to hold a new referendum on independence if UK the referendum will decide to secede from the European Union.
Note that the national results of the referendum showed the victory of the supporters of Brexit.
For withdrawal of Britain from the EU voted nearly 17 million voters in the country.
