Scottish Parliament is expected to back the new independence vote proposed by Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. The vote will be taking place today at around 5pm.

With the vote Sturgeon is expected to get the legal permission to request U.K. authorities to hold a new independence vote by the time the results of Brexit negotiations have ended. That should be done by spring 2019.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said that "I want the U.K. to get a good deal, but when that deal emerges I think people in Scotland should have an informed choice whether that's the path they want to take or whether they want to take the path of becoming an independent country."

Theresa May, the Prime Minister of the U.K said earlier this month that now is not the time for a vote and Brexit should be finalized first.

However, according to BBC the vote could be held just within days of the U.K. giving the formal notice to leave.

The last referendum on Scotland took place in June 2016 when 55 percent of the people voted to stay in the UK, while 62 percent of the people wanted to remain in the EU.
