Abstract: It is proved that non-trivial normal abelian subgroups of the Galois group of the maximal Galois $p$-extension of a field $F$ (where $p$ is an odd prime) arise from $p$-henselian valuations with non-$p$-divisible value group, provided $\# (\dot {F}/\dot {F}^{p})\geq p^{2}$ and $F$ contains a primitive $p$-th root of unity. Also, a generalization to arbitrary prime-closed Galois-extensions is given.
