Low turnout in voter registration process in Southern Kordofan

29 March, 2011 (Miraya FM)

The Carter Center has expressed concern over the low turnout in the voter registration process ongoing in Southern Kordofan State.

In a statement that welcomed the completion of the process, the American charity said Sudan's National Electoral Commission (NEC) did not send sufficient registration teams to some areas in the State.

Meanwhile, the Southern Kordofan High Electoral Committee said that more than 600,000 voters have registered for the gubernatorial and parliamentary elections.
NEC Deputy Chairman, Professor Abdallah Ahmed Abdallah, told Radio Miraya that a high level delegation from NEC also visited Kadugli to assess preparations for the elections.

Election campaigns start in the next two days and will last for 32 days.
