Scotland's First Minister and the head of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, will officially ask the Prime Minister of Great Britain Theresa May to organize a referendum on independence of the region, Sky News reports.
The full text of the appeal of Scotland's First Minister will be made public on Friday.
As it expected, Ms Sturgeon will say that there is not enough time to start the process, which is preferable to finish in 18 months. In turn, Theresa May will almost certainly rejects this request, Sky News notes.
This week, the Scottish Parliament voted backing a new referendum on independence.
