Silver Jubilee of the Eritrean Referendum

April 23rd-25th 2018 marked the Silver Jubilee of the Eritrean Independence Referendum and it has been twenty-five years since Eritrea was declared a sovereign country. This historic event was a watershed moment in the history of the Eritrean people. ... "The freeness and fairness of the process has been certified by the observers. This outcome is not surprising or unexpected. … In the event, it constitutes a delightful and sacrosanct historical conclusion to the choice of the Eritrean people. And although it has been decided that formal independence will be declared on 24 May 1991, Eritrea is a sovereign country as of today, April 27, 1993."
