Sudan Elections 2010

Staff with the National Elections Commission prepare ballots at a polling station in Khartoum, Sudan.

Staff with the National Elections Commission prepare ballots at a polling station in Khartoum, Sudan.

On April 11, 2010 citizens in Sudan went to the polls for the first time in 24 years. A whole generation that was born, raised, educated and graduated under one totalitarian government rule has been able to cast their vote.

The Sudanese voting period ended on April 15, but while the actual voting process has come to an end, a debate about election transparency and credibility has started. The debate involves political parties, international observers and citizens in and outside Sudan.
