Have there been any other independence referendum in the world apart from the UK?
- Anonymous4 weeks agoBest Answer
Loads and loads of them.
In the past hundred years or so, some of the most notable countries to have a referendum and become independent include Iceland, Cambodia, Mongolia, Guinea, Algeria, Eritrea, South Sudan, and many nations that used to part of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia.
Brexit is a totally different kettle of fish, though, unless you were referring to Scotland's recent vote for independence from the UK.

When did the UK hold a referendum on independence from each-other ?
Scotland held a referendum on their independence from the UK and N.Ireland has the right to hold a referendum on independence from the UK, without first asking the UK's parliament for their permission .
But, England and Wales have never held a referendum on leaving the UK.

It wasn’t an independence referendum. UK is already a totally independent nation within the EU.
