Despite opposition boycott, could sudanese elections be free and fair?

President Omar al-Bashir first seized power in a coup in 1989 Sudan is voting in elections expected to be won by its war-crimes-indicted President Omar al-Bashir after the main opposition called for a boycott. Small queues formed at polling stations, with voters saying the elections guaranteed stability. The opposition and Western powers said the polls lacked credibility because of political repression. Mr Bashir has ruled Sudan since 1989, and is charged by the International Criminal Court (ICC) with genocide.
