Irregularities beset Darfur vote

Complaints of ballot rigging in war-torn region as small number votes in Sudan poll.

Only a few thousand people were expected to vote in Darfur’s internally displaced persons camps due to under-registration, but proceedings did not go smoothly for those who did turn out to cast their vote.

There were complaints that many ballot papers were delivered to the wrong places, and some election candidates said their names did not even appear on the ballot papers.

The candidates took their complaints to the electoral commission but it said the irregularities were too many to count.
