The electoral body held a meeting on Thursday to review arrangements made for the 2015 elections and announced that a training session will be held later this month in Port Sudan for poll with funding from the European Union (EU) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The meeting listened to reports from commissioners and committees regarding the delineation of geographical constituencies, training, electoral education and securing the electoral process as well the formation of supreme states committees especially new ones.

They were also briefed on the technical and logistical aspects in light of the initial budget approved by the presidency and forwarded to the Ministry of Finance.

Opposition parties taking part in the national dialogue process called for by president Omer Hassan al-Bashir insist that elections be postponed if the dialogue is to be fruitful.

But the NEC affirmed that their work and timetable is governed by the 2008 elections law unless changes are introduced to it.
