The first minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon is expected to resign.
This was reported on Wednesday, February 15, in a BBC report that said Sturgeon will be stepping out of the office after a tenure of eight years.
This comes after her recent involvement in a row over policies for transgender people, as Scotland passed the Gender Recognition Reform Bill, which makes it easier for people to legally change their gender.
Sturgeon took charge as the leader of the ruling Scottish National Party during the 2014 referendum on independence when 55 percent of the country decided to stay with the UK.
So far, no comments have been made by the Scottish government on the matter.
