Puerto Ricans vote in favour of being 51st US state, but doubts remain | World news | The Guardian

 "A plebiscite in the US’s oldest and largest colony, Puerto Rico, has returned an overwhelming vote in favour of becoming the 51st state of the union, in a result instantly rejected as meaningless by opposition parties, which had boycotted the event.

With 95% of the vote counted, the option of formally joining the US as a fully fledged state was backed by 97.1% of those who cast their ballots. By contrast, full independence/‘free association’ with the US was supported by 1.5% and keeping the colonial status quo just 1.3%."
