Islamist leader says new Sudan constitution undemocratically drafted

[JURIST] Hassan al-Turabi [Wikipedia profile], a Sudanese Islamist leader freed last week [Aljazeera report] after a 15-month detention in connection with an alleged coup plot, has spoke out against the country's Sudan's new constitution [JURIST report]. He called the committee that drafted the constitution "not representative" of the people and complained that members of the current legislature were either appointed or the result of uncontested elections.
