Addis Ababa, Feb 7 (Prensa Latina) Stability governs in southern Ethiopia after the peaceful conclusion of the referendum on the establishment of a new state in the region, the Regional Office for Security and Peace reported.

The head of the entity of the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region (SNNP), Alemayehu Bawdi, assured at a press conference that the vote took place safely and according to plan.

During the 12 hours that it lasted, the people showed great determination and tolerance, cooperating with law enforcement to guarantee the success of this democratic exercise, Bawdi stressed.
