As the presidential election scheduled this month in Sudan gets near, uncertainty and fears from unknown future escalate in Sudan. The ruling dictator wants the votes to clean himself from dictatorship and to prove that he Omar Al Bashir is not a dictator.
He knows, the simplicity of the people of Sudan make them forget things even when they are harsh easily. He obviously acts following the Sudanese proverb, "Slap the wanton and apologize".
The false, rigged and manipulated elections threaten Sudan by more dangers than the country have seen since the independence from Britain in 1956.
New development in the political scene has happened when several candidates opposing the Sudanese dictator Omar Hassan Ahmed al Bashir have peeled away dropping the elections.
However, the European Parliament said its delegation would be in Sudan during the elections period from 8 to 15 April to observe the elections at all levels of government.
Meanwhile, a team from the Arab League arrived in Sudan to monitor the elections too.
The lights given by the American envoy to Sudan Scott Gration as good lights from the ruling party and the electoral commission to ensure fair elections are misleading so his attempts to convince the boycotters will be complicated and certainly fail.
However, Gration continues his shuttle diplomacy between the opposition groups and government officials. His attitude to dismiss the opposition proposal to delay the polls until November could explain whether there are hidden American agendas in the Sudanese election or not.
Human rights activists said the United States of America should not recognize the upcoming elections in Sudan, in the lights of the new challenges set in forth by unfair elections procedures that favour the ruling party.
The uncertainty is not in the north only, as Human Rights Watch says the ruling party in the north and the government of South Sudan have both jeopardized the fairness and credibility of the polls by restricting freedoms of expression and assembly.
Over allegations of fraud, main opposition groups vowed a partial boycott of the elections, accusing the military regime of attempts to maintain its power by conducting sham elections.
They called to postpone the elections seven months until next November to pave the way for fair pre-elections procedures.
Observing the outcomes, Carter Center says Sudan election has a highly balloting process, which puts the process at risk. The Centre monitoring the polls called for security improvement especially in Darfur and the east.
The Centre says the "possibility of a genuinely open, inclusive and secure campaign environment" has been undermined.
According to many Sudanese in the opposition and some observational channels, the rigging of the elections began when the authorities manipulated the 2008 census results and passed biased electoral laws through a false allied electoral commission.
The election boycott came after the Secretary General of the Communist Party, Mohammed Ibrahim Nugud and the candidate of the Southern Sudan People's Liberation Movement, Yasir Arman decided to withdrawal from the presidential elections.
The grouping comprises the Umma, the Communist Party and the Democratic Unionist Party issued 9 points declaration comprises their objections, last Thursday.
They announced that they would continue their meetings to discuss the challenging issue and agree on some common grounds to continue boycotting the election.
Two alleged opposition individuals in addition to Hassan al-Turabi's party have not withdrawn from the elections. In addition, the military religious regime funds those two presidential candidates to appear in the list as independent candidates.
Al Turabi (the former leader of the Muslim Brothers of Sudan and the leader of the so-called previously the National Islamic Front NIF) called the Sudanese opposition to continue and asked them not to boycott the elections, while the electoral commission confirms that the elections will be in due time as announced before.
This picture imposed by the "fox of the 1989 coup" could explain that out of 9 presidential candidates 4 are running their campaigns in favour of the military religious regime.
However, let us imagine the following list will continue and let us vote for our candidate. Please as said in the POLL below, vote once for your candidate.
