Sudan is preparing for its first multi-party election in more than two decades on Sunday.

The National Election Commission is distributing election material to various locations in the southern part of the country. President Omar Hassan al-Bashir is hoping to win the election.

If he gets victory, it would be in defiance of an International Criminal Court that issued a warrant for his arrest for war crimes in Darfur.
