Thematic Framework Controversy!

Osman Mirghani

The next few days of Sudan’s history will shape a fate that could never be predicted. Next Thursday which coincides with the 30th of June is a deadline in which several political parties decided to bring an end to the battle by knocking out the ruling parties.

The resistance committees in Khartoum and other states called for mass rallies all over the country. The Forces of Freedom and Change (the Central Council) issued a circular calling on all Sudanese to take to the streets to uproot the existing coup.

On the other hand, the Forces of Freedom and Change (the National Accord) which share power with the military generals called for a mass rally in supporting the existing government.

This Sudanese phenomenon is a clear expression of the distance between the thematic framework and the reality of ruling Sudan.

Before Sudan got its independence, the two big houses (The Ansar and Al-Khatmiya) agreed to form a national government as a safety valve for the sustainability of independence.

But after a few weeks, the political differences emerged a matter that led to the fall of the first national government after independence.

This fall was but proof that the (thematic framework) was absent as each party was looking for seats in the government.

In recent history, the Constitutional government signed on 17th August 2019 called for the formation of a non-partisan independent government to rule the transitional government, but in reality, the government formed was a power-share among the political parties a matter that led to its failure.

These days there are intensive negotiations, before the deadline of 30th June, under the auspices of the Trio-mechanism (UN, AU. IGAD) between the FFC (Central Council) and the military component.

According to the thematic framework, the FFC announced that the negotiations aim at bringing an end to the coup and recovering the transitional period which is the demand of the public.

The question that poses itself is will the said realities cope with the thematic framework?

It is a repeated scenario that will lead to the same failure of the previous experiences.

In short, the Sudanese dilemma will remain far from the thematic framework and its results.
