news - Sudan Party Nominates Bashir as Candidate for 2010 Vote

october 5th, 2009

"The National Congress Party (NCP) of Sudan has nominated embattled President Omar Hassan al-Bashir to be its candidate in the scheduled April 2010 general election.

The election forms part of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement, which ended the over two decade civil war between the North and South.

Over the weekend, the NCP reiterated its commitment towards the implementation of the CPA, claiming it will ensure Sudan's unity.

But the semi-autonomous Southern Sudan government has threatened to boycott the vote if the NCP fails to fully implement the agreement."
