South Sudan leads voter registration


December 8, 2009 (KHARTOUM) — The National Election Commission today announced Southern Sudan as the leading region in voter registration with 82% describing it as highest number in the country.

The commission which will announce the definitive figures of the voter registration on Thursday, said eighty two percent of the voting population in South Sudan has been registered summing up to seventy-five percent of registered voters all over the country.

Southern Sudan witnessed important mobilizations during the electoral operation as the registration in the semi-autonomous region will also be requested to take part in the 2011 referendum on self-determination.

Official sources from the commission further revealed to the official SUNA that total figure of registered voters in the whole country are 14, 757443, adding that process of publication and objections to the registry starts on Tuesday.

Mawien Kuc, Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, National Election Commission Chairperson, told Sudan Tribune he was busy with tallies to get exact figures of the registered voters in the state but estimated to be over one million.

"We will have over one million people registered and ready to take part in the next national election scheduled to take place in April 2010," he said.

Similarly, Bak Lual, state minister for communications and information said believed that the state has gone extra mile in mobilization of local people to turn out for registration.

"I am telling you that we really committed our resources for proper mobilization of our people during registration," he said stressing he personally participated in the registration process in his constitution.

The official who appreciated the work done by the team said this registration notwithstanding some shortfalls in forms and registration materials challenged the result of last census.

The minister continued to say wondered what will the people who hurriedly went out with result giving less population to the state of Northern Bahr el Ghazal say.

"I do not know what they will say about such inspiring result in our population just in few months," he said stressing last population census was not properly conducted. There were a lot of problems attached to it when it was being conducted.

        The 14 million is not the population of South Sudan, but the over all number of registered voters all over Sudan.

          I was considering it to be South because the number is surprising. It is unbelievable that a country of around 40 million people is now ending up with 14 million. Does the figure indicates success or failure of oncoming election? I just judeg that most of people including myself are far from this bloody unorganised election process. No candiate, no plan and nowhere at all. Out of that figure i think South is sitting at 2 million. We are watching before the bloody clash will emerge.

            Dear Logic Boy

            I am surprise to hear you saying that Southerners sell vots. My dear coming in term of corruption on issue related to vots it is hard for the Southerners to sell vots because they have face alot of inhumanity all over the worlds. Make sure that if south sudan is affected by war it will the same affect you direct or indirect.
            Why don’t you sleep at night and think what things do you see happening during the day and then wish for the worst to happen.

            Do’t be jelious of your brothers and sisters who have been bless by their God if all of us have cars and other assets then there will be no busyness in the world forget souths . That is what we call development. You may have your one pound and you want to have tea you can get at the right time. what next the matter and you are sleeping in a nice house wheather grass roofs or not and your security is fine then it is fine for you.

            please, don’t creat arguement or try to be negative all the time look at Gatwish, he argue but sometime he can reason. Thanks God we are new to the media.

          Lunatic logic boy.

          I’m very sorry to call you a traitor who wants to disorganize the Equatorians, I’m one of the freedom fighters from Equatoria I have been following up your comments on this website but I don’t blame you I blame those people who allow your childish comments on this website. You are nothing but an Arab, a woman in a trouser even some women have proved to be better than you I for sure hate you because of your comments. Where do you think will your hatred take you? Even the US which people today admire was like Southern Sudan corruption, tribalism; nepotism, etc didn’t start here in Southern Sudan it was every where and people joined their hands to fight it. Hare also it will come to an end very soon. Talk to your friend Dinka boy and you stop this Nuer,Dinka, & Equatoria issue join your hands together and fight the Arabs you will get support from everywhere in Southern Sudan

    Northern Bhar al Ghazal State.

    The last result for your State was surprising many people in Southern Sudan, because Awiel Communities have got always a big numbers same things in Warrap State is too lagerst and we will hear the result later on. I think the Southern Sudan’s population will be close to 15-17 million if combining with none qualified to vote.

      Let not rush to conclude our population as such and such because otherwise we will look back into ourselves again grinding our teeth betterly. I’m telling you this, Turkana, Taposa and Kormajong with populace poeople in East Africa before they were divided into three countries; Turkana in Kenya, Taposa in Sudan and Kormajong in Uganda.
      So, thinking ex number were stunning previously and now is such can still bring some doudt how?

    Something must be wrong.

    From 8 millions to 14.7millions, it means population of south double itself.

    I think people go to Church to change the way they act to way of God which to be honest.

      Mr Oduck Bol( Lam Akol),

      What is wrong when Southeners reached that figure.
      Let me tell you that DC will come and begged SPLM like Dr Riek did when he join SPLM. He said this I want any position as lond I will be the member of SPLM.
      My friend if there was no your traitor Lam Akol, Riek would have been agood leader in our eyes but your Arab spoil him and his all community.

      those who opposed the welbeing of south sudan on this website e.g by degrading our popularity in the country are not truly real south sudanese, they just chose those allien names as south sudanese to indicate that we are against ourselves, these boys logy,oduck,busta 2,brother in christ etc are arabs.

      Let the prophets of dooms be proven wrong that they underestimated the population of South Sudan. We are not few BUT we will can form a Nation. Rwanda and Burundi in the Great Lakes Region are tiny Nations but they are enjoying their freedom. These are just tactics of Jellaba who are fearing of loosing vast oil reserves to the South and remain with an empty poor North without resources.

      Please put it in your empty Taliban-like heads that South is going to part ways with you whether you like it or not.

      Freedom oyee, South Sudan Nation oyee

        Dear All Equatorian

        LOGIC is Not Equatorian.

        I would like to tell those commenting in this forum that Stupid logic boy is not an Equatorian for God sake, he is a shuluk by tribe and he want everything posible to make Equatorian Love SPLM DC which no one dare gonna do.

        Logic is not Equatorian, equatorian are smart in mind, heart and writing, we have no mad Logic in equatoria, even topossa are smarter than him.

        I have confirm that he is a Shuluk of uppernile, ok, so anything he write be it about Equatorian shoould not be valued here.

        95% of Equatorians are SPLM/SPLA die hard and they fought in the wars and thats was why SPLM resurrected in Equatoria and In Chukudum Didinga land.

        All this Stupid writing in this web is nonsense from young Kid eithyer from Koboko refugee camps or kenya, those that have not tested the bullet.

        Budi is far from Tribalims and Logic is not equatorian

    Now we can make Omer bashir go, 75% total country vote in the south and we can add about 15% from the north , the alliance will have about 90% of total vote in the country, so NCP can go home now , but we all know they want to rig the elections by any means nessecary.
