Restructuring the State of Sudan

Osman Mirghani

In the recent few weeks, almost all the envoys to Sudan expressed their concern and fears that the country might slip into chaos.

The accurate description of the Sudanese case is that it has nothing to do with the influential parties in the political scene being military or civilian, but the problem is in the structure of the state.

It might be possible to provide an urgent prescription to come out of the present crisis, but a deep solution is the only guarantee for the continuation of sustainable political stability for the revival of our economy.

Any state has two components, the first is the broad society which represents the general assembly, and the second is the government at its al levels.

However, Sudan did not reach the status of a failed state despite the political conflicts and security tensions.

The real threat is the collapse of the economy which is hitting the citizens and shaking the cohesion of the family which is the true pillar of society, besides the continuous decline in the main pillars e.g. education, health, energy, and production in all sectors.

I think that the latent energy in Sudan’s natural and human resources could contribute to restructuring the state and removing the defects in its skeleton.

Restructuring the Sudanese state requires the unification of the national sentiment and raising the feeling of “Challenge”.

The project of restructuring the state depends on a deep vision that considers the factors that led to the failure of the state in the last 66 years since independence.

One of the most important factors in strengthening the moral values of the state is the good governance supported by the values of the rule of law.

The newborn of the Sudanese state requires continuous thinking outside the box.
