Sudan is holding its first multi-party poll since 1986 and the Sudanese are wondering whether an end might be in sight to incumbent Omar al-Bashir's many years in power.

In this one-hour roundtable discussion, Al Jazeera's Hassan Ibrahim discusses election issues with five leaders - from the government and various opposition groups - including Dr Maryam al-Sadik al-Mahdi, a senior member of Umma and the first woman to occupy a central post in a sectarian party.

Also joining the discussion is Dr Ghazi Atabani, a key advisor to the Sudanese president and one of the most influential negotiators in the Darfur issue.

This one hour special looks at issues of unity and the commitment of each main political entity to a united Sudan as well as the charges against al-Bashir.

The Sudan Debate was aired from April 9, at the following times GMT: Friday: 1400; Saturday: 0300; Sunday: 0600 and 1900; Monday: 0230; Tuesday: 1400.
