The higher elections committee in Sudan's North Darfur State in western Sudan on Monday acknowledged technical errors at two polling stations in the state and decided a re-polling in the two stations, but just among National Assembly (parliament) constituencies.

"Errors occurred at two polling stations, one in Mellit area and one in El Fasher. The errors included missing symbols of the national assembly candidates from polling cards, which caused the polling to be ceased," al-Sir al-Meck, chairman of the state's higher elections committee told reporters here on Monday.

"The committee tackled the technical error, and after consultations with the candidates, party representatives and the observers, it has been decided that a re-polling will be held at the two centers, but just for the national assembly votes only", he added.

He further revealed that the polling delayed at the station of Abu Shouk camp for internally displaced persons, saying that "the delay occurred due to logistical difficulties, but the problem has been tackled and the center started to receive the voters."

Al-Meck affirmed that the security arrangements at the polling stations were progressing as planned without any violations, pointing out that it was 100 percent safe at all parts of the state.

The polling stations in the North Darfur State amount to 420 with 630 electoral committees. Some 691,871 voters in the state are to cast their votes to select their representatives for the presidency, state governors, national assembly and state legislative councils.
