Why would you threaten to expel international poll monitors in the sudan?!!!

mini-Sudan valgplakat-Lars Møller 1The translation to English in the poster is ( lets go and register our names for election, where and when)

Now Mr. Pres. why would you want to expel international poll monitors they are one of the main factors that will make this election legitimate for the CPA agreement. It is so interesting to see how this goes, if I'm not mistaken the Carter Institute is not meant there to help only the NEC is also there to give advice as to how the election is to be done. It is also there for other political party to communicate and discuss with the Carter Institute for election affair and the process of legitimate election. I don't think that they are wrong in telling you that the environment that the Sudan is having right now is not the time to have the election in. that if it is delayed that would help.

I don't know what's the big deal in delaying the election for several months. It has already been delayed before, all international factors plus internal factors such as political parties other than the NCP and the SPLM have agreed that this election should be delayed. Now this is itself is a democratized process. No I do not know other reason that would affect the election if it was postponed for several months. Also I would like to restate the final sentence in more detail, now we know that many of the main internal political party of sudan have issued a statement demanding the postponed the election

March 21, 2010 (KHARTOUM) — The leaders of the major opposition parties in Sudan has pushed a memo to the presidency requesting that April elections be postponed until next November in order to allow for major reforms in a number of laws primarily relating national security and media.

also, the Carter Institute which is one of the main Institute that monitors this election has also stated that the election process is at risk

March 19, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – The Carter Center issued a preliminary statement on the final stages of Sudan’s electoral process saying the process "remains at risk on multiple fronts including the ability of candidates to campaign freely" and the potentially negative impact from delayed logistical preparations.

"Logistical preparations are straining the limited capacity of the NEC," the US-based observer mission said in a public statement. "With a series of delays and changes in polling procedures, a minor delay in polling for operational purposes may be required."

In a dramatic statement, the Carter Center said "it is increasingly unclear if the NEC can deliver a successful election on time," citing limited NEC and UN transportation capacity, the massive volume of materials to be deployed, the re-packaging of materials necessitated by changes in the planned number of polling stations, voters per polling station, and delays in ballots production.

even Eritrea felt the need to say that this election should be postponed, and many different Institute have stated that this election is either not ready, could not be legitimate, or even the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Luis Moreno-Ocampo had a say on this upcoming election stating that it is a 'Hitler election'.

The EU's observers on the ground are facing "a big challenge," Moreno-Ocampo told a press conference in Brussels.

"It's like monitoring a Hitler election," he added.

all of that aside and i Also do not know if there is another definition for the following statement stated by the Sudanese president:

"We wanted them to see the free and fair elections, but if they interfere in our affairs, we will cut their fingers off, put them under our shoes, and throw them out," he said.

The only thing that I could say about this statement is no comment, it is funny and sad to see such statements broadcast it throughout the world as if we are threatening the world and we ourselves have more problems in our country then we could solve. And now we are threatening to cut their finger off that's just ridiculous. o well i will stop here for now, feel free to comment
