Will #Sudan's #Bashir Really Resign in 4 Years?

This statement has prompted vigorous debate on Twitter. I compiled the best Tweets...from Sudan, Africa, and overseas...below. Please feel free to edit for completeness. Read More

The Sudanese dictator Al-Bashir is weaker than any of the dictators fallen or about to fall - a little push would do him in no time #Sudan

Authorities in Sudan blocked "tinyurl.com"! do they even know what they're doing? We are ruled by illiterates!

Just in: Sudan's Omar Bashir won't stand for re-election in 2015. Pre-emptive move? I think north Sudan is pretty vulnerable...

Following Yemen's saleh Sudan's Bashir to step down at next election. Syrians can't expect same from Assad even in their wildest dreams.

Did he even consider it! #Arabiyanews : source in governing party says Al Bashir will not run for the next presidential in #sudan

#Sudan's #Bashir sensibly says leaders should retire at 60. Voting age there is 17. Its is 21 in #Cameroon.
@ykhogaly Bashir is not a leader, he's a war criminal. The people in the north will be better of without him. #Sudan
Khalid Yousif @damazeen
Not enough. Bashir should resign and dismantle his party. Sudan needs regime change and new constitution. #sudan #jan25

Is #Sudan's Omar al-Bashir trying to fend off potential protests? He's announced that he wont stand for re-election: http://t.co/AKEbZeG

The people of #Sudan will not wait for Omar Bashir to end his term. He MUST go NOW like other dictators.

When things change by the day Al Bashir states that he will not stand for re election 2015, that's 4 years away! #sudan

#Sudan: #Bashir says he won't run for re-election in 2015. Let's hope he's surrendered for trial long before then. http://bit.ly/igrwWB

Al-Bashir's declaration that he will not seek re-election is a very lame maneuver that buys him 3 more years in power. i don't buy it #Sudan
