The Civil-Military Disputes: Institutionalism Crisis

Neimat AlNaiem

The Civilian and Military Transitional Government formed in August 2019 following the December revolution that ended 30 years of the former regime is facing many challenges and obstacles. The two components of the Transitional Government have to play a major role in leading the country peacefully during this transitional period.

To rehabilitate and reform damage infrastructures, economy, boosting peace and security is a long and complicated process. So the two parties should put into consideration the country and living of the people as a top priority in dealing with and solving issues and problems of Sudan.

The recent statements and the hot words that came out from some of the Transitional Sovereign Council members are considered as indicators of failure that the partners of the transitional period do not work in harmony.

Such disputes or conflicts and accusations between the civilian and military components of the Transitional period may delay and affect trust-building between the two parties.

Many questions come up in mind to what extent do the two parties are capable to overcome these hidden or seen disputes. Is it a crisis of the civil or military side? What is the mechanism of solving such misunderstandings if we can describe it? Who are the real beneficiaries of this conflict and disputes between the civil and military components of the Sovereign Council?

It is high time to work hard for the sake of Sudan, not the political parties or any political incubator. The legislative elections will be the way out for Sudan. The building of stabled institutes enables decision-makers to play the roles. Building these bodies will be the right step towards institutionalism and State of Institutes that are never affected by changing of ministries or top officials in the cabinet.
