Security agents took Selma Adam Bineya, prominent member of the mainstream Sudan Liberation Movement, from her house in Omdurman to an unknown destination.
Activist Sandra Faroug Kadouda was detained, when she was driving her car to the anti-election sit-in at the headquarters of the National Umma Party in Omdurman.
In El Suki, near Sinja in eastern Sudan, anti-election activists Shumo Hamid Zakariya, Adnan Jamaleldin, and Taha Mohamed Taha were taken into custody.
Mohamed Yousef, Ahmed El Tayeb, and Ali Omar El Faki, leading members of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), were held in Ed Duweim, White Nile state.
Last week, several protests were staged against the election throughout the country. Stickers and graffiti in various towns urge the Sudanese not to vote in the “election of blood”.
