Southern Sudanese Referendum Held in Nashville, Tennessee

Edited By Alan Gray, NewsBlaze

The Southern Sudanese referendum held in Nashville from Sunday January 9th to Saturday January 15, 2011 was an unqualified success. The voting was free, fair and transparent.

Everyone who registered and wanted to vote was allowed to vote with no pressure or intimidation. Ballot counting was efficient, meticulous, methodical and thorough, according to observers. The atmosphere was very festive, joyous and infectious.

Nashville was one of the 8 cities chosen in the United States. The others are Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Omaha, Dallas, Washington, DC and Phoenix.

Of the 915 Southern Sudanese who registered to vote in Nashville, 902 voted. 898 voted for secession, while 4 voted for unity. Over all, 99.6% resoundingly voted for secession.

If what happened in Nashville is repeated across the United States and in Southern Sudan, there would be no doubt that the Southern Sudanese are on their way to achieving independence.

"I was very pleased with the thoroughness and transparency of the process. I am glad to be part of this historic ocassion."
- Leonard Madu observer and President of the PanAfrica Conference
