Jan 13, 2015- Khartoum-SudaneseOnline-The leader of Sudan’s main Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), Mohammed Osman al-Mirghani, announced on Saturday officially his party's participation in the forthcoming elections and his support for Al-Bashir's candidacy for the Presidency, and no candidate from the party to compete Al-Bashir
DUP official in charge of states, Mohamed al-Muatassim Hakim, said in press statements on Saturday that the country needs national reconciliation as the only way out to resolve the country's problems, adding that the elections is a constitutional benefit shared by all.
The few active opposition movements in Sudan are already losing hope of any change while an economic crisis that has worsened since the secession of the oil-rich south in 2011 has angered struggling citizens.
But some Sudanese feel they cannot trust alternatives to Bashir, who has proven himself a political survivor, fighting off coup attempts, civil wars, and international isolation.
