High inflation weighs heavily on Sudanese voters

Nation faces overall inflation rate of 23 percent with almost half of population living below poverty line.

Voters in Sudan are heading to the polls on Monday for the presidential and parliamentary elections, which opposition parties have threatened to boycott. 

The ruling party says it has pulled the economy out of a tailspin after the South’s secession. 

But most Sudanese, almost half of whom live below the poverty line, are mainly concerned with putting food on the table with an overall inflation rate at 23 percent.
