World News: World Welcomes New Nation
 February 10, 2011 - This year the world will be welcoming the new republic of South Sudan. The votes are in and it is official, the people of southern Sudan has voted to separate and form a new country. They have declared independence and the new country will be born on July 9, 2011.
The people voted from the 9th to the 15th of January and the votes were counted and verified on January 30. 98.83% of the people that participated in this historical referendum voted for the separation of Southern Sudan. 
There are still obstacles in the separation like the sharing the oil reserves, 80% of which now belong to Southern Sudan. The president of Sudan has officially agreed to the separation and will not prevent its independence. 
Folks, it looks as if we will have to re-draw our maps. However it is a great thing that the people have found a way to solve their issues. We expect the cultural tension in this region to decrease as they have finally settled it by separating and forming a new country in which we hope will start off in a great way.
ParkerPedia would like to wish the people of Southern Sudan good luck in their separation and hope that everything runs smoothly.
