Secession refers to the formal withdrawal from a political party, organization, or federation. It is usually done when the withdrawing party or state seeks to establish independence. One of the best examples of secession in history is the extraction of eleven southern states from the Union in 1860 which precipitated the American Civil War. Thus usually there is a tough problem difference that drives the withdrawal and leads to secession.
The word secession is derived from the Latin expression secessio. Democracy relies on a prohibition of secession. Therefore democrats like President Lincoln in the 1860's, are of the opinion that secession must be suppressed. But there have been several incidents of secession and continues to occur in several countries even in the present times.
