Time Is Running Out; A Round Table Is Crucial to Get out of this Dilemma

One of the big concerns of the revolutionists of the glorious December uprising is that the transitional period is still below the aspirations. Unarmed and verbal violence has become a daily practice and a constant feature of political differences.

It is part of a plan to drag the country into a societal war similar to the raging fire in Libya, Syria, and Yemen.
This plan is an essential tactic to abort the revolution towards coming back to rule over the ruins of the nation.
Unfortunately, the plan is going on smoothly within the existence of several factors that provide a conducive environment including the failure of the transitional government in confronting the enemies of the revolution by bringing them to book.

Another factor is the fragmentation and the obvious weakness amid each of the Forces of Freedom and Justice and the Sudanese Professionals Association a matter that resulted in its failure to continue as a political and popular incubator for the transitional government, hence protecting the transitional period.

The media also failed to play its aspired role in awareness and mobilization as the reporters and political analysts are satisfied with writing some scenarios which are based on untrue or inaccurate information.

We are now in bad need of a safe and successful way out to overcome the present dangerous status and to protect the revolution considering that the ongoing attempts will not pay off unless additional tools are introduced to support it.

Accordingly, we propose launching an inclusive roundtable to discuss the means of rescuing the transitional government and period from collapsing and to confront all the attempts of making it a failure.

We propose the recent roadmap set by the Prime Minister, Dr. Hamdok to be added to the initiative of the University of Khartoum Professors as guidance for the roundtable agenda.

The initiative of the University of Khartoum Professors represents a national role before the success of the revolution and we believe that the initiative is still coherent and far from any partisan agenda.

We believe that Prime Minister, Dr. Abdallah Hamdok is still enjoying the admiration of the Sudanese people and the international community a matter that qualifies him for playing this role and other roles for the benefit of the nation.

The forces of Freedom and Change, other political forces supporting the revolution, professionals association organizations, resistance committees, civil society organizations, Sudanese Armed Forces, Rapid Support Forces, Police Authorities, General Intelligence Service, prominent political figures, and other forces that can provide the required support.

The current situations in the country indeed give the impression of confusion and turmoil, especially for those who were waiting for picking the fruits of the revolution, but we believe that such an impression is temporary and might happen in certain circumstances. But most importantly is that we should not give up. Instead and we should learn how to defeat the depression and raise the motives of the people because this could remove the confusion and turmoil dominating the political arena in these critical moments.

We require such activation to raise the hope flags and start working seriously towards making the revolution a success through defeating the attempts of the deep state to abort it.

PM Hamdok Initiative

Prime Minister Dr. Abdallah Handok has launched an initiative which he called “The national crisis and transition issues .. the road forward”.

The initiative included 7 essential axes represented by:

  • Reformation of the security and military sector.
  • Justice
  • Economy
  • Peace
  • Dismantling the ousted regime.
  • Foreign policy and national sovereignty
  • Transitional Legislative Council

The initiative aims at unifying a broad historic bloc on an agreed-upon program to protect the transition and achieve sustainable democracy.

Sudan is indeed witnessing a comprehensive national crisis since its independence because, up to this moment, there is an absence of an agreed-upon national project to achieve the aspirations of the people in establishing a healthy civilian democratic regime.

The previous experiences of transition were poor and did not have the capabilities to put the country on the right track, but the December revolution transition availed a real capability to achieve the aspired national project.

He succeeded in all those dossiers due to his long experience in working in UN institutions.

But on the other hand, his busyness in dealing with those dossiers created a kind of vacuum in the executive body of the transitional government, and this is obvious in the differences among the FFC and the fragmentation of its components, besides the deterioration of the economic conditions.

The PM initiative deserves support from the political incubator (the FFC) because it represents an additional pushing-forward factor.

It is high time to call for an inclusive roundtable conference to discuss the PM initiative along with other initiatives such as that of the University of Khartoum to come out with a national accord to rescue the transitional period and avail a healthy environment for fair and transparent elections towards achieving the aspired sustainable democracy.
