Sudan ruling party chooses Bashir as candidate for 2020

AFP  |  Khartoum 

Sudan's ruling party has chosen to stand for re-election in 2020, reported today, even though the constitution allows only two five-year terms.

The Party's advisory council announced Bashir as the party's candidate after an overnight meeting held in Khartoum, the official agency reported.

The veteran leader has been in power since a 1989 military coup but has only faced contested elections since the new constitution went into effect in 2010.
