        If I hadn't seen the process with my own eyes, such a result would have been hard to believe. But traveling the countryside as an official non-governmental observer from Grassroots International, I observed the voting at several different polling stations. Everywhere, the story was the same. Despite having three days to vote, virtually every able-bodied voter in the country's 1.1 million electorate braved long lines and a searing desert sun to vote on the first day of balloting. Overall turnout was estimated to be about 98%, including over 90% on the first day.
An Elaborate Process for Foregone Conclusion
        It may have been the most elaborate process in history every carried out to achieve a foregone conclusion. The independent Referendum Commission of Eritrea could easily have gone through the motions of democratic process. In a country arguably born as the poorest on earth, few could have faulted them. Instead, they made the referendum a national rite of passage, a sacred right for each Eritrean voter to tell the world -- peacefully and democratically -- their answer to the question no one asked for forty years.
        By 6:00 am Friday morning, the first day of polling, the village of Senafe, where I observed the voting, was a buzz of activity. Men and women lined the streets surrounding the polling station. Over the course of the day, voters patiently withstood the withering desert sun to cast their ballots. After voting, many could contain their elation no longer. Women cried and embraced the ballot box. Some ululated in the traditional celebratory manner. All smiled widely.
        As poll workers meticulously and repeatedly counted the ballots three evenings later, the final tally showed a result even more decisive than the national landslide: 2,928-1 in favor of independence. One U.S. observer from the U.N. told me afterward, he never would have believed such a result if he hadn't witnessed the process himself. Another U.N. observer told me she had never seen such a meticulous process.

When Eritrea broke off from Ethiopia, the Ethiopians were not given the right to vote on the independence of Eritrea thus from legal perspective the process orchestrated by meles and esayas is null and illegal. According to the international law, when a state with in a union is in the process of declaring independence meaning leaving the union, more than 80% of the members of the union need to support the independence cause; in other word, the breakaway province needs the support of more than 80% of the constituting provinces.

The case of Eritrea’s independence is one that is illegal and lacks the tennets of international law to back it up. Therefore once the anti Ethiopian elements with in Ethiopia die out which are in the process, we as Ethiopians who were sidelined and stripped of our rights to vote will have the right to recall Eritrea back b/c the means and the ways Eritrea broke away from Ethiopia is illegal and in breaking away, they took with them our life line, our ports and most importantly the process didn't involve the voice and the votes of Ethiopian people and her provinces. In due time, we will recall Eritrea back into the Ethiopian fold. We will have the backing of our people and the strong army and the backing of international law. I urge every Ethiopian to keep this in mind.

why should ethiopians have given the right to decide others people's future?
Referendum is the right of the people who opted to separate not the whole nation,the very near example is s.Sudan, had the northern sudanese given the right to decide?no
will the the whole UK participate in the Scottish referendum?NO
so why should you then?

The referendum was conducted in an atmosphere of fear and duress. Such referendum could not have measured the true view of the Eritrean public.

In 1991, just prior to Mengistu's departure, EPLF controlled more than 80% of Erittea. NO sane individual could go against its declared objective of separation from Ethiopia. It shed bloods of both Eritreans and Ethiopians who opposed it. The so called referendum was just a formality.
