Sudan’s president, Omar al-Bashir, stressed the opposition’s inability to block the coming general elections in the next April, pointing out that these opposition parties don’t have popular support to convince people to boycott the elections.
Addressing rally in Al-Gadarif state on Saturday to kick off its electoral campaign, Al-Bashir noted that the opposition parties will not be able to prevent the people from exercising their institutional right.
"We will focus in the coming period on transforming the motto of 'Sudan is World Food Basket' into a living reality," he said
The National Electoral Commission (NEC) has said 15 candidates will stand for the presidency, but most apart from Bashir have little traction with the public.
The NEC says that 13,600,000 people out of a population of around 35 million have registered to vote, although it is unclear what percentage of eligible Sudanese this constitutes since there has not been a census in the country since 2008.
Most of the mainstream opposition parties have announced they will boycott the elections.
These include members of the Sudan Call agreement, signed in Ethiopia in December to unite political parties opposed to Al-Bashir, armed groups fighting for his overthrow and civil society groups.
Some have launched a petition calling on Al-Bashir to “leave"
