CAIRO:  President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi called Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir Monday and congratulated him on winning the Sudanese presidential elections and taking a new presidential term, Alaa Youssef, the presidential spokesperson, announced.

Bashir won 94% of the vote, 5,252,478 votes, Youm7 reported.

Around 5 million out of 13.8 million registered Sudanese voters participated in the presidential elections vote, according to statistics of Sudan’s election commission.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) in Hague indicted Bashir in 2008 on charges of committing genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur. The European Union (EU) warned that Sudan presidential elections will lack credibility and won’t end with legitimate results. Egypt is not a party to the court.
