Unofficial preliminary tallies of Sudan's elections – based on 25 polling stations across the country – indicate a landslide victory for President Omar al-Bashir, with some stations recording a 90 percent win for the incumbent ruler.

In capital Khartoum, al-Bashir scored significantly higher than his competitors for the country's highest office, according to unofficial results collected from ten polling stations in the capital.

Parliamentary candidates from al-Bashir's National Congress Party (NCP) also scored much higher than their competitors in Khartoum.

In South Darfur, unofficial tallies from five polling stations indicate a victory of over 90 percent for al-Bashir in the presidential poll.

However, NCP parliamentary candidates were met with a challenge in the polls by several independent candidates in the province.

Al-Bashir also scored over 90 percent of the vote in the central province of Al-Gezira, according to figures from ten polling stations.

On Thursday, the National Elections Commission (NEC) declared that final poll results would be announced on April 27.
