Sudan election in its road for a inevitable disaster with the withdraw of opposition parities candidates.

610x well he is finally out, as if i had known he would be out. to be honest there has been rumor here and there and everywhere in Sudan about this candidate withdrawing from the election in a secret deal with the current ruling party the NCP. But after all is this true?. some might say it is, because when he withdraw from the his position as an election candidate he clears the field for the current NCP party to compete with the rest of the opposition parties which haven’t withdraw from the election but they said that they would boycott it (I guess that the same as withdraw) but not all do take this action for granted. Maybe by the end of next week we will see them all withdrawing from this election. Leaving the whole election field for the NCP. So I am guessing here are the scenarios, if all parities withdraw from this election then this might lead or would lead to having an illegitimate election in the Sudan which in turn leads to postponing the election to another time. Also we might think that this is a way for the SPLM to pressure the NCP demanding a more fair and free election, O well let’s see what the news says about all of this.

"On the level of the candidates of the Presidency of the Republic, most of them (Sudan's opposition groups) decided to withdraw," said Mohamed Zaki, head of office for Sadeq al-Mahdi, leader of the opposition Umma party.

“Veteran Islamist leader Hassan al-Turabi confirmed that candidates from his Popular Congress Party would contest the poll, to be held 11-13 April.”

“But the Umma party of former Prime Minister Sadiq al-Mahdi, the Democratic Unionist Party and the Communist party have all said they will no longer participate.”

“The opposition parties and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) - which serves in a coalition at national level with President Omar al-Bashir - all believe the electoral process has been rigged in favour of his National Congress Party.”

“They say the registration process has been flawed, and their access to state media and rights to hold rallies restricted.”

“SPLM presidential candidate Yassir Arman announced on Wednesday that he was pulling out of the election.”

“He also cited a lack of preparedness for the election in the Darfur region, where a rebellion has been taking place since 2003.”

hello there lurin
Thanks for your thought, i think Sudan is heading for a strange election, for example the opposition parties is not really that opposition, to my understanding it is a union of party all against the current ruling party to prevent it from ruling the Sudan for another 24 year. The NCP the current ruling party have been ruling the Sudan for 24 year in a show of dictatorship and no political party policy so that is why everyone is uniting to boycott this election. I don’t know if this is the right choice but I am sure there are batter choice to make to solve the problems of this election other then boycott it.
