Quick roundup of election results

January 30, 2011 § 1 Comment

The South Sudan referendum was not close: 99.59% voted yes on a 98% turnout. In other words only around 80,000 people didn’t vote and only about 1600 people voted against.

Still no solution to the impasse in the Ivory Coast but there’s some great maps of the result here

Silva was easily re-elected in Portugal, again maps here.

Provisional results from the Central African Republic suggest Bouzize is well ahead with Patisse in a distant second and probably no need for a second round. All opposition candidates are alleging rigging.

It will now go back to international arbitration to decide what happens next. They will probably ask for the referendum to be run: this is basically a delaying tactic by the north.
