The names of winners are known since the start of the elections as there was only one candidate in these electoral constituencies. Most of them are in southern Sudan.

In the national parliament, the NEC said five MPs have been elected by acclamations, four among them in southern Sudan, are members of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) while one from the National Congress Party (NCP) elected in eastern Sudan.

The four SPLM winners for the National Assembly are – the following is phonetic transcription from Arabic language – 1- Angelo James Splitro, Central Equatoria, Juba West, 2- Atem Garang Deng, Jonglei, Bor, 3- Johnson Jonbiko Kwlang, Lakes State, Yirol West and 4- Waal Deng, Warrap, Gogrial West. The fifth MP chosen by acclamation is Mahmoud Ali Beatai, Kassala, Hemshkourib, the National Congress Party.

The electoral board also announced that four MPs are elected by default for the Southern Sudan legislative Assembly. All of them are members of the SPLM. 1- Ngor Marc Lotidi, Eastern Equatoria, Kapoeta North, 2- Marc Lochabi, Eastern Equatoria, South Kapoeta, 3- Lino Makina, western Equatoria 4- David Deng Athorbi, Lakes state, Yirol west.

According to the NEC, 17 MPs are elected by acclamation in 10 states, two MPs member of the NCP in: Northern Kordofan and Kassala, and eight SPLM MPs, in southern Sudan : Central Equatoria one MP, Eastern Equatoria two PMs, Western Equatoria one MP, Lakes state one MP, Jonglei one MP, Western Bahr el Ghazal two MPs, and Warrap six MPs.

The first multiparty elections in the country since 24 years are seen as a crucial benchmark in the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed by the ruling NCP and the former rebel SPLM.

However, the SPLM northern sector joined by several opposition parties boycotted the electoral process in northern Sudan. They accused the dominant NCP party of irregularities and rigging.

On Wednesday, the NEC decided to re-run elections in 33 national and regional constituencies, 15 for the national parliament and 18 in different states largely in northern Sudan.

The electoral body admitted printing errors. Ballots in the concerned constituencies were missing candidate’s symbols in other cases the logos were swapped. The elections in these areas are expected to be held within 60 days as provided in the electoral law.

        The way was simply given to the ’Benys’ unopposed. Some bribed their rivals to leave them unchallenged. It is not democratically encouraged unless those constituencies have only one able person and the rest are simply onlookers.

    Democracy works that way. Then what do you means about democracy if you opposed the result. Yes, leadership is not about mumbling,it’s about showing leadership characteristices. My friend, you have to show leadership style so that your likes can compete for the next leadership formation,but i doubt if your likes are like in their lively hood of age,then their is no way that you will appear in any leadership positions. Our leaders will be always the family of Teny and no body else. Haaaa, killed yourself dear for the results Mps.

      Dinka Boy,

      Do you think it would be credibily called elections if Salvatore Kiir alone stands unopposed by all the political parties in the South? No, my friend. Democracy is all about availing different tastes, colors or options.

      If you bribe your opponents to leave you alone unopposed, is that not denying the citizens to choose the right person?

          Hi, Jack Chuol,

          Why do you want to see his/her such aperson.
          Please, Dog Lam could not win here in the Southern Sudan according to SPLM spirit. all such a parties could fail due to their defects from mother party SPLM.

          SPLM would wins all seats of State Legislative Assemblies, SSLA and Presidential seat accordingly.

          Long live SPLM
          Long live H.E.Gen.Salva Kiir Mayardit
          Long live Referendum of Southern Sudan

        This is just like the way that Bashir bribed Traitor Machar to convinced the SPLM to withdraw his main competitor Yasir Arman for the presidential race. You support Bashir to run for the presidency unoppose while you do not support anybody from the South to run unopposed. You are really a traitor like the rest of your people.

        I don,t know whether you really know what you are talking about my dear?
        Those MPs hace their contenders if you failed to understand democracy.
        It’s is not like providing ration to everyone who is in need. These leadership base on characteristics. There is no way that Nuer can appear in the list.

      What is stupidity?

      Human problems and faiures are not started afar or from outside but from the inside of you. It takes baseless opinions to be your truth, one denies what others say over the issues, a guy can pretend to know everything eventhough he is not near knowledge and he can rush to a conclusion even if the formulation of his approach does not provide him a final closure to his assertion. And any person like that is not intelligent at all; he just a self-seeking person. His mental inferior allows him to be everything like he thinks he is himself. Have you ever noticed anything of the kind? Have you ever seen someone with behavoirs against himself like that? That is by all way a stupidity. A stupidity begins with odd behavoirs toward others.
      What I always think negative against others is my stupidity, and who does that to others is his stupidity.
      I will one day get its part if I fit that desciptions and who esle? What is human stupdity?

    Thanks to those South Sudanese who spent their spare time in long line because of the election. We South Sudanese need this election as the start and the pre-condition of democracy and referendum. I really give special thanks to SPLM-the party which brought South Sudanese this kind of freedom during the dark period. Our heros liberate South Sudanese and indeed,they redemned Southerners from Slavery other we would be from nowhere if SPLM did not took sucessful arms against Khartoum government. A proud person like me can not talk negative about SPLM because SPLM liberate us and still will take Southerners to the respected place. SPLM suffered lots of setback,but she brought the peace and democracy through CPA. We have to say thanks to Dr John Garang de Mabior and our SPLA heros alive or dead. I know people are now drinking and eating their sweat and blood but it’s ok. They deserved respect though they did not taste the single dim,but their leagacy prevailed. Thanks
