Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she will soon return to the European Union after Brexit.
“Scotland will be back soon, in Europe. Keep the lights on,” the politician wrote on her Twitter page.
On the night of Jan. 1, the transition period following Britain’s exit from the European Union (Brexit) ended, with a cooperation and trade agreement between the parties taking effect.
Scotland is an autonomous administrative and political part of Great Britain. The first referendum on Scottish independence was held on September 18, 2014, but 55% of Scots voted for the region to remain part of the United Kingdom, while only 37% voted against it.
