Upcoming referendum for South Sudan

January 4, 2011

Our thoughts are now with Joseph from The Impossible River Journey, and the upcoming referendum in Southern Sudan on whether or not it should remain as a part of Sudan on 9 January 2011.

This is part of the 2005 Naivasha Agreement between the Khartoum central government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement(SPLA/M). A simultaneous referendum will be held in Abyei on whether to become part of Southern Sudan.

Here’s an reportage by CNN on the upcoming referendum. Also UN are positive towards the process. Here Obama reaffirms his support for the referendum.
