Haute-Corse
Haute-Corse
(French pronunciation: ​[ot.kɔʁs]; Corsican: Corsica
Corsica
suprana) (English: Upper Corsica) is a department of France consisting of the northern part of the island of Corsica. The two Corsican departmental councils merged on 1 January 2018 with the single collectivity of Corsica, with territorial elections coinciding with the dissolution of the separate councils.[1]

History[edit] The department was formed on 15 September 1975, when the department of Corsica
Corsica
was divided into Upper Corsica
Corsica
(Haute-Corse) and South Corsica (Corse-du-Sud). The department corresponds exactly to the former department of Golo, which existed between 1793 and 1811.

Geography[edit] The department is surrounded on three sides by the Mediterranean Sea and on the south by the department of Corse-du-Sud. Demographics[edit] The people living in this subregion are called "Northerners" (Supranacci). Culture and politics[edit] The Corsicans are a fiercely independent people. However, a 6 July 2003 referendum on increased autonomy was voted down by a very thin majority: 50.98 percent against to 49.02 percent for. This was a major setback for French Minister of the Interior Nicolas Sarkozy, who had hoped to use Corsica
Corsica
as the first step in his decentralization policies.
