Sudan: Elections

Volume 494: debated on Thursday 25 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans his Department has to monitor the presidential elections in Sudan in 2010. (281965)

We would like the 2010 presidential elections in Sudan to be observed by competent and experienced bodies and organisations, including for example the EU. The EU received an invitation from the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and National Elections Commission in February 2009 to join a group of other countries and regional bodies to supply electoral observers. The UK will offer any assistance we can to the observer mission, including personnel.
