Name of law: Right to Access Information Law of 2015 First adopted: 2015 Last modified: n/a RTI Rating last updated: 2019-05


The Sudanese right to information law is weak. This starts with its failure to include any proper guarantee for the right to information. Although its scope is adequate, its procedures for making and processing requests are weak and its regime of exceptions is exceptionally weak. It does have an oversight body, which is encouraging, but it signally lacks the independence that would be required for it to be effective. One of the stronger areas is its promotional measures,  which is one of only two categories on the Rating where it scores above 50%.
