STORYLINE:

With barely three months ahead of a scheduled referendum in Southern Sudan, Sudan’s Second Vice President Osman Ali Taha said that the Southern Sudan Referendum will happen on time.

According to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed in 2005, the Referendum is to take place on 9 January 2011.

Speaking to journalists in Khartoum, Taha highlighted that there were still some outstanding issues yet to be resolved, mainly post-referendum arrangements and the north-south border demarcation.

A referendum expected to take place in Abyei where residents are supposed to vote if they should be part of the north or the south should the south secede, Taha said the vote in the area mainly depended on the acceptance of two main groups living in the area, the Dinka Ngok and the Misseriya nomads.

The Abyei vote as stipulated in the CPA, is expected to take place simultaneously with the self-determination vote in southern Sudan.
