Excellencies, Representatives of the AU Peace and Security Council Member States,
H.E. Chairperson Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, African Union Commission,
H.E. President Thabo Mbeki, Chair of the AU High-Level Implementation Panel,
We, the undersigned Sudanese and African civil society organizations, write with deep concern about the decision of the African Union Peace and Security Council to send an observation mission to monitor the 13 – 15 April 2015 Sudanese general elections, in direct contradiction to the recommendations of the African Union’s own pre-elections assessment mission.
