Scottish Voters to reject independence

Written by  Published in Politics Friday, 19 September 2014 11:00


Kathmandu,September 19 ( CNS)--Scotland will vote to stay in the United Kingdom after rejecting independence, the BBC has predicted.


With 29 out of the country's 32 council areas having declared after Thursday's vote, the "No" side has 55% of the vote, with the "Yes" campaign on 45%.
By 06:00 BST (07:00 GMT), the "No" campaign had more than 1,737,000 votes, with "Yes" on just over 1,398,000.
A total of 1,852,828 votes is needed for victory. The vote is the culmination of a two-year campaign.
The BBC is predicting on the basis of votes declared so far by Scotland's local authorities the "No" side will win the referendum with 55% of the vote while "Yes" will secure 45% of the vote.
In his first public comment since the results started coming in, Mr Salmond tweeted: "Well done to Glasgow, our Commonwealth city, and to the people of Scotland for such incredible support."
His deputy, Nicola Sturgeon, conceded defeat with a handful of results still to be declared, saying there was a "real sense of disappointment that we have fallen narrowly short of securing a 'Yes' vote".
She told the BBC the projected result was "a deep personal and political disappointment" but said "the country has been changed forever".
Ms Sturgeon said she would work with "anyone in any way" to secure more powers for Scotland.
Prime Minister David Cameron said: "I've spoken to Alistair Darling (head of the pro-UK Better Together campaign) - and congratulated him on a well-fought campaign."Source BBC
