The party led by Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish National Party, won the Scottish election Thursday.

On Saturday, the Scottish National Party won 64 seats in the Scottish Parliament and declared its victory in the country’s elections last Thursday.

Although she did not gain an absolute majority, the party’s leader, Nicola Sturgeon, maintained her position as prime minister and increased the number of parliamentary representatives for her party.

Besides, other parties promoting the independence of Scotland from the United Kingdom also received many votes.

And for Sturgeon, that outcome leaves a clear mandate: the call for a second referendum on independence (the first referendum was already held in 2014, when the proposal to continue to be part of the bloc of countries representing the United Kingdom triumphed).
