Scotland’s chief minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has insisted on Tuesday that there is an “undisputed mandate” to call a second referendum on Scottish independence, after the first held in 2014.

In a statement in Edinburgh to launch her campaign to call another referendum, the leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) has said that the mandate responds to the victory that her party won in the regional elections held in May last year in Scotland.

In the first referendum that took place on September 18, 2014, 55% of voters in Scotland rejected separation from the United Kingdom compared to 45% who supported independence.
