Referendum conducted fairly


International Observers to the referendum in Southern Sudan which ended on Sunday have said that the poll was ‘well organised’ and ‘broadly consistent with international standards for democratic elections’.

In some parts of the country turnout was as high as 90% and the result which could take up to four weeks to announce is expected to be overwhelmingly in favour of a split from the North.
