Sudanese President Bashir wins 94.5 pct of vote in election - election committee

KHARTOUM, April 27 (Reuters) - Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir won 94.5 percent of the vote in the country’s election, which was held earlier this month, the election committee announced on Monday.

With a boycott from the main opposition parties in a country ruled by Bashir for more than a quarter of a century, the 71-year-old Bashir looks set to tighten his grip. (Reporting by Khaled Abdelaziz and Ahmed Tolba; Writing by Michael Georgy; Editing by Yara Bayoumy)
