Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir will stand for re-election in April 2015, despite being wanted by the International Criminal Court. On Tuesday, Sudan's ruling party re-elected Bashir both as leader and presidential candidate. 

The ICC has issued two arrest warrants for him on charges of having orchestrated atrocities during the conflict in the western region of Darfur. The 70-year-old is accused of war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity. 

Will clinging on to power become the way leaders avoid international justice? 

Here's what some people have already been saying on Twitter.
