Southern Sudanese youth leaders say this time is the time for fighting with the ballot paper instead of with bullets

Report by Sudan Radio Service (SRS), Wednesday, November 25, 2009:
(Juba) - Southern Sudanese youth leaders are calling on young people in Sudan to come out and register in large numbers in order to take part in the coming general elections.

In an interview with Sudan Radio Service in Juba on Monday, representatives of the Juba University students’ association said that they will not be manipulated by politicians in the run-up to the 2010 general elections.

Dhal Adit Dhal, from JUSA, spoke to Sudan Radio Service.

[Dhal Adit Dhal]: “So many people have been hired to attack people. But what we have to do as young people is to make sure that this time is the time for fighting with the ballot paper instead of with bullets. We will go to our parents and other citizens to tell them about the importance of the elections. We should not be dragged blindly into them by the politicians. Sudan has been unstable for a very long time. We have to make sure that this time we make Sudan better. A new Sudan with all the different cultures and all the diversities!”

Adit called on young people to vote wisely in the coming elections and to elect responsible leaders who will act to create positive changes in Sudanese society.
Sudan Radio Service will be back online soon.
