More on the referendum

As people are bound to have noticed in the international media, the referendum is still on track. The latest reports indicate that the "magic number" of 60% turnout have already been reached, meaning that unless something happens the results should be legal and valid according to the agreement between the two parties.

There is some tension along the North-South border according to the same media, but if it's more than usual or if it's simply a matter of more being reported... even we don't know for sure. Not much of it seems related to the referendum though, so we're very hopeful that the last half of the referendum will be as quiet and peaceful as the first half have been.
