Sudan postpones elections by 11 days: electoral body

Sudanese women arrive at a polling station to vote in the gubernatorial and legislative elections being held in Kadugli on May 2, 2011Sudan’s electoral body said on Saturday it had postponed elections planned for next year by 11 days to April 13, without giving reasons for the decision. Voters had been due to head to the polls on April 2 to elect the president, members of parliament and state governors. “All the election process will be delayed for 11 days,” National Electoral Commission chief Mukhtar al-Assam told AFP by phone. It also remains unclear whether polling for state governors will take place as President Omar al-Bashir suggested a constitutional amendment last month that would allow people to be appointed to the posts, rather than elected.
