Elections in South Kordofan State Postponed Partially


Khartoum, Mar. 15 (SUNA) - The National Elections Commission Monday issued the decision No. (71) for the year 2010 on postponement of the elections partially in South Korodofan State for 60 days


Hereunder, Sudan News Agency (SUNA) publishes an unofficial translation of the decision :-


(a) This decision is to be named (decision on partial postponement of the elections in South Kordofan State) and shall be enforced since the date of its signing


(b) After reviewing the note of the Presidency of the Republic to the National Elections Commission on the political and security situation in South Kordofan State and the agreement which was reached by the two partners of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA)


(C) And after reviewing outcome of fact-finding conducted by the National Elections Commission through its concerned organs in the state


(d) And after reviewing the text of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of the year 2005, which was included in the Interim Constitution of the Republic of Sudan for the year 2005, and the Protocol on Settlement of the Dispute of South Kordofan/ the Nuba Mountains and the Blue Nile which was signed in Naivasha on May 26, 2004, and the National Elections Act for the year 2008


(e) And as long as South Korodofan State was an area of armed dispute, a matter that necessitated assigning a particular protocol for it which included former interim remedies for holding the general elections that will be held in accordance with the Constitution and the law, and because this protocol stipulated that the final solution for the political dispute and termination of the state of war depend on ratification of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) by the citizens of South Korodofan State through the democratically elected Legislative Assembly in the state


(f) And with regard to the call of the nominees of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) for restoration of their nomination after their withdrawing to these nominations to express their dissatisfaction over the result of the population census that deprived a considerable number of citizens in the state from representation, and the subsequent impacts on the determination and distribution of the geographical constituencies


(g) And taking into consideration the consequences of the withdrawal of the SPLM nominations, and the general security and political situations, the impacts that would result of holding the elections without participation of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM), and with regard to the need to maintain peace and stability in the state and to realize the public interest of the country


(h) Due to all that, the National Elections Commission issued the following decision :-


1 - Continuity of the elections for the Presidency of the Republic and also for the National Assembly (Parliament), with participation of the nominees of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM)


2 - Accepting restoration of the nominations of the candidates of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) who have withdrawn their nominations


3 - Postponement of the elections for the position of the Wali (governor) and for seats of the Legislative Assembly in South Kordofan State/ the Nuba Mountains, provided the elections for these positions shall be conducted during a period of 60 days which are to be counted as of the date which was earlier set for beginning these elections


The National Election Commission issued this decision at its 53rd meeting on March 10, 2010


Signed by: Abil Alier, Chairman of the National Elections Commission
