Referendum in Sudan should be priority for all

IKV Pax Christi director Jan Gruiters says: "If the elections are to be held before 2011, they are likely to be neither free nor fair, as a result, they may well impede the CPA’s centre-piece, the referendum, and draw the country into chaos and violence. Thus there is need for a serious discussion on the timing of the elections."

The Regional Representative of the IKV Pax Christi Horn of Africa Programme, Mr. John Ashworth who is the main author of the report adds: "We hope this report supports the ongoing effort to give CPA implementation the attention it deserves as it is the only available instrument to achieve a transition towards a more democratic and peaceful Sudan."
