Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir scored overwhelming wins in a sample of results from national elections marred by fraud accusations and boycotts, state media reported on Sunday. Both European Union and Carter Center observers have stated last week's elections did not match international standards.


Bashir won between 70-92 percent of votes cast in around 35 scattered polling centres, foreign voting posts and one state, the state Suna news agency reported. The figures have not been confirmed by the National Elections Commission, Reuters added.
