Sudan's ruling National Congress Party (NCP) candidate Ahmed Haroun on Sunday won the governorship vote in South Kordofan State, located on the north-south border, with about 6,000 votes ahead of his rival from the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM).

The elections results announced by the National Elections Commission (NEC) at a press conference indicated that Haroun has scored 201,455 votes against 194,955 votes for the SPLM candidate Abdul-Aziz Al-Hilo.

The NCP meanwhile has won the majority of the seats of the national and state legislative councils which will supervise the state's popular consultation as stipulated by the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

The SPLM has earlier withdrawn from the vote sorting and counting process and threatened that it would not recognize its results.
