The National Election Commission (NEC) has dismissed orders from the Sudan National Court of Justice after accusations from an independent candidate who lost in the April polls.
Lieutenant General Alfred Ladu Gore who lost the Central Equatoria State Gubernatorial seat cited massive fraudulent during the elections.
Early this month the Supreme Court had given NEC a 1-week ultimatum to defend itself in the court because the electoral process in Central Equatoria State was not free and fair.
However, NEC issued a decree on Thursday dismissing the accusations leveled on her stating that the move by the Gore’s Fundamental Change group and the Supreme Court is “political but not a fight towards achieving democracy in the country”.
Gore’s camp has condemned the response by NEC and described it as “irresponsible”.
On April 26, 2010 the NEC announced the current Governor Clement Wani Konga as the winner for the Central Equatoria State Governorship.
Moreover, according to a reliable source, the Commission has also dismissed several other accusations as ordered by the Court.
Immediate former Governor of Western Equatoria State Jemma Nunu Kumba and Angelina Teny, contestant from Unity State are some of the contesting candidates for Governorship whose cases have been dismissed by the Commission.
