Carter Center critical of Sudan’s vote counting

In a report dated May 10, 2010, the Carter Center, which monitored the Sudanese elections, described the vote tabulation process as "highly chaotic, non-transparent and vulnerable to electoral manipulation."

It urged the National Elections Commission to publish the results of individual polling stations as quickly and widely as possible and to thoroughly review the results. The counting and tabulation period was generally peaceful in most areas, although serious incidents took place in several states. Read the entire report here (PDF).
