...Media and opposition groups reported low participation in the first two
days of polling. On the final day of scheduled voting, the NEC announced
that voting would be extended.

The regime instructed the media not to report on the low voter turnout.
Taking photographs at polling stations was banned after images of poll
staff sleeping at empty polling booths were spread through social media.

The NCP deployed about 60,000 police in Khartoum to defend the electoral
process. Dozens of members of opposition parties were arrested.
