LONDON, June 24. /TASS/. Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Friday a second independence referendum is "highly likely" after more than 50% of UK citizens voted to leave the European Union.
"It is highly likely that Scotland will hold a referendum about independence from the UK and that it is ‘democratically unacceptable’ that Scotland faces being pulled out of the EU against our will," Sturgeon said.
He added that the Scottish government will start preparing legislation to hold another independence vote.
Some 52% of UK citizens (17.41 million people) voted on Thursday for leaving the European Union, while 48% (16.14 million) were in favor of remaining part of the bloc.
