With less than two weeks to go before Sudan’s presidential election, Yasir Arman of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), the main opposition challenger to President Omar al-Bashir, has removed himself from the race.

SPLM says it is boycotting the planned vote on April 11 because of what it calls “electoral irregularities” and the continuing conflict in Darfur.
