    Hi
    I am trying to work out what is being said in the following report about the EU observers role in the recent elections in Sudan.

    Ils y rencontrent de nombreux élécteurs, des observateurs internationaux, des spécialistes du pays et des représentants des partis principaux en lees./ lys/ lisse?

    They meet lots of voters
    and international observers,

    the country's experts
    and representatives of the main parties XXX

    I can't work out what is being said at the end of the sentence. I have transcribed it phonetically which I hope helps decipher it!

    Thanks for all your contributions!!
