Sudan extends deadline for vote nominations

Sudan has extended the deadline for nominations in the first multi-party vote in 24 years after candidates said they did not have enough time to prepare, election officials said on Wednesday.

Elections would go ahead as scheduled on April 11.

"(The deadline for nominations is delayed) until the 27th January because we know that there are some who said the time is too short. But the elections will be on time," Abu Bakr Waziri from the National Elections Commission told Reuters.

If no presidential candidate gets 51 percent, it will force a second round between the two leading candidates.
