Gibraltar The 2002 vote
The Gibraltarians voted on who should rule the Rock.

The result was a 98.97% No to shared sovereignty (or rule) between the UK and Spain.

Spain's foreign minister has said the result has no value, because it is a "largely virtual" vote based on just an idea.

London also says the vote has no legal weight.

But the people who live on Gibraltar think it will send a powerful signal to London and Madrid that joint rule is not what they want.
