Nour El-Din Babiker, a spokesman for the Sudanese Congress Party and a leader in the Forces of Freedom and Change, said that any attempt to belittle the achievements of the transitional government or claim that “the transitional period in Sudan did not witness any change” is subjective and far from the truth.
Babiker added, during his participation in the “Evening” program on Al-Jazeera Mubasher, on Saturday, “Hemeti, as the second man in the Sovereignty Council, is responsible for the situation in Sudan, because he is one of the decision-makers in the country.”
The first deputy said, “Sudan is in an uncomfortable and critical situation, with social disintegration, completely turbulent politically, and in an uncomfortable security situation, and economically the rich and the poor have been affected.”
Hemedti warned against describing them as “sedition promoters” with legal prosecution, without clarifying.
Babiker acknowledged the existence of a state of delay in some files, especially the economic file, but on the other hand, he confirmed the achievement of many achievements, the most important of which is that the current government has succeeded in accomplishing important steps on the path to achieving peace in Sudan.
The leader of the Forces for Freedom and Change said, “The signing of the peace agreement with the Revolutionary Front in Juba, and the ongoing negotiations with the SPLM to join the peace convoy in Sudan, are major successes that count for the government.”
He continued, “No one can deny that the transitional government managed to remove Sudan from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, adding in the same context that it achieved major political and diplomatic gains through Sudan’s return to the international community through the conference held in France.”
Babiker acknowledged that the transitional government inherited a heavy burden that extended for 30 full years, during which the Sudanese state witnessed widespread corruption and nepotism, in addition to economic and social decline.
He continued, “Sudan did not witness a retreat from the gains of the revolution during the transitional period, but it only needs more years for the government to fulfill the promises it made to the people.”
In turn, Salah Mahmoud, a member of the Political Bureau of the Sudanese Communist Party, considered that the general situation in Sudan is characterized by a widespread state of frustration.
He explained, “The demands made by the Sudanese revolution, represented in freedom, peace and justice, have not been achieved until now, while grave violations of human rights are still committed on a daily basis.”
He added, “The massacre of the Sudanese General Command that took place in 2019, and the other massacres that took place in more than one town in Sudan, is further evidence that nothing has changed in the country, as long as the perpetrators who committed those massacres are still at large, and that the work of the investigation committees for these crimes is not It’s still stagnant.”
Mahmoud accused the ruling Sudanese power structures of failing to implement and achieve the goals of the revolution, adding that Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok and the Sovereignty Council, with its civilian and military sides, are responsible for the series of setbacks that Sudan is witnessing today because they reached unfair agreements with international institutions at the expense of the Sudanese citizen.
The Sudanese official in the Communist Party revealed that seven months after the Juba Agreement, the political and security situation in Darfur is still more dangerous, due to renewed military confrontations and insecurity.
Mahmoud concluded by saying that the Forces for Freedom and Change and the parties that were involved with them in these political, economic and security projects “steal the revolution from the masses and are responsible for the situation in Sudan.”
