PSPP&Eacirc;s decision not to take the oath to the king supported by &Eacute ;cottish


The PQ leader's decision not to take the oath of King Charles III during his swearing in of the National Assembly has echoed to the ears of Scots, some of whom are fighting to make their country independent of the British Crown. 

The news first appeared in an article in the Scottish daily 'The National', but was later picked up in several other Scottish media outlets.< /p>

A wave of support also swept over the Reddit network, where the article received more than 57,000 “upvotes” in less than 20 hours, according to the Rally for a Sovereign Country.

< p>At a time when Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon is waging a legal battle with London to organize a referendum for her country's independence, the choice of Paul St-Pierre Plamondon has had repercussions in the Scottish independence movement “All Under One Banner”.

“Independence movements around the world must support each other, unite and help each other, “said the president of the Rally for a Sovereign Country, Benoît Roy, on Friday.

Recall that the three PQ MPs – Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, Pascal Bérubé and Joël Arseneau – were not sworn in to the new King Charles III during their swearing-in ceremony last October 21.

Defended by Mr. St-Pierre Plamondon during the recent electoral race, the idea was also followed by Québec solidaire, whose deputies also refused to take the oath to the king.
