Analysis: Leads in BBC Sudanese election story

The news elements present in the lead for this story are incorporating the news value of impact and conflict and answering the 'who', 'what', and even 'where' questions.

The lead is specific in the details of 'who' and 'where' but more general when it came to answering the 'what'. It was clear who the story involved and the titles they held and where the event was taking place but only gave a short, general description of what was going on. The reporter wrote the lead so the reader would have interest in the topic and would be intrigued to read the rest of the story.
