The chief of the Mission Dr Violet Daguerre has pointed out in a press conference that the mission involved a group of non governmental organizations from France, Jordan, Norway, Iraq, Bahrain with vast experience in the domain of monitoring elections and that these organizations have agreed to take part in the monitoring of the elections in the Sudan.
