The Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether the Scottish Parliament has the powers to establish a second independence referendum this October.

The UK Government had called for the Supreme Court to throw out the case for indyref2.

The Scottish Government asked the Supreme Court to rule on whether Holyrood would be able to legislate to hold a vote without the consent of the UK Government.

The Supreme Court stated that a hearing will be held in London on October 11th and 12th.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is aiming to hold indyref2 on October 19, 2023, and is pushing for an agreement with the UK government to allow this.
