An election official seen with ballot papers during elections in the capital KhartoumBy Shadi Bushra KHARTOUM (Reuters) - When the Arab Spring uprisings burst out four years ago, Bedreldin Mohamed believed that, finally, many of his Sudanese countrymen would join him in calling for an alternative to President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, now in his 25th year in power. Things have changed." Most of Sudan's main opposition parties boycotted the presidential and parliamentary elections held on April 13-16, saying the government had continued to detain and harass them despite Bashir's promises last year to allow more political freedoms. As a result, say government critics, voters have been left with few viable alternatives to Bashir and his National Congress Party. The public's will to vote is also being worn down by government warnings that the country could fall into chaos under new leadership, activists say.
