Former US president says two days of extra polling offers a chance for all to vote.

    Jimmy Carter, the former US president, is leading a team of 70 international observers monitoring Sudan's national elections.

    He is currently in Juba in southern Sudan, where he told Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel Hamid that he welcomes the government's decision to extend the polls as it will give everyone a chance to vote.

    Carter also spoke about the problems faced by observers across the country.
