Sudan adopted southern independence referendum procedures

On December 22, 2009, Sudanese lawmakers adopted legislation setting out the procedures for the 2011 southern independence referendum. It was agreed to earlier that month by leaders of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM). The referendum, scheduled for January 9, 2011, will require a 60 percent voter turnout and a 51 percent affirmative vote in order to pass.
