View Larger Map
Sudan will hold general elections in 2010 - a year later than expected - the electoral commission has announced.
The deputy chairman of the commission, Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, said the electoral process would begin next month and finish in February next year.
Under the 2005 peace deal to end years of war in the south, the elections were supposed to be held this year.
