“The President will stop over in Khartoum at the conclusion of the African Union Summit, which is currently taking place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia,” spokesperson Mac Maharaj said.
The President will use Sunday’s visit to hold consultations with his counterpart, President Omar al-Bashir.
Sudan is scheduled to conduct presidential and legislative polls in early April 2015. However, some Sudanese political opposition parties have previously demanded that the elections be postponed and a transitional government be formed to resolve what they said is a crisis in the country.
Sudan’s National Elections Commission (NEC) on Tuesday said it approved 15 candidates for the upcoming presidential elections.
