Sudan's presidential and parliamentary elections will start on April 2, 2015, the head of the election committee said on Wednesday, announcing a vote widely expected to extend veteran leader Omar Hassan al-Bashir's hold on power. He has been in power for 25 years, surviving an armed rebellion in the western region of Darfur, economic crisis, anti-government protests and an indictment by the International Criminal Court on masterminding war crimes in Darfur.
