The objective of this study is to investigate the relationship between electrification rate as the dependent variable and natural resources rent, general government final consumption expenditure, GDP, GDP per capita, population growth, and power consumption in Sudan for the period between 1990-2014. The aim of the study is to explore factors that are impacting Sudan’s total electricity access. A quantitative method using the Ordinary Least Square (OLS) Regression analysis testing approach was applied to study the significance of the relationship between the dependent and independent variables. The results revealed that there is an insignificant relationship between the variables in the study. The study is indicating that variables outside the scope of the study are probably impacting the electrification rate in Sudan.
