Sudanese security trainings wrapped-up
afrol News, 5 January - The Sudanese police officials have wrapped up a series of United Nations-backed security training sessions in the country’s war-ravaged region of Darfur in preparation for this year’s national election.
According to the UN reports, the three-day session focused on security issues, election rules and crisis management ahead of the general election, slated for April.
The training was conducted in all three of the region’s states by police advisers from the joint UN-African Union peacekeeping operation in Darfur (UNAMID) and officials from the Government of Sudan.
Some 120 police commanders and officers participated in yesterday’s final session in El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur state, which aimed at helping Sudanese Government officials guarantee the safety of voters.
Acting Commander of the UNAMID North Darfur police force, Aliposo Vakuloloma, voiced hope that participants will use the knowledge gained to ensure fair and safe elections, and underscored the importance of an effective police force for the polling process.
