The Civil Forces Caucus is not denying the possibility of Aisha Musa reconsidering her resignation from the Transitional Sovereignty Council (TSC), provided she receives assurances that meet her demands.
The caucus of civil forces hinted at the possibility of TSC member Aisha Musa reconsidering her resignation from her provided her demands are met.
Reporter for the Civil Forces Caucus, Muhied Siddiq, revealed that the TSC has not approved nor rejected Musa’s resignation.
Siddiq denounced accusations regarding the TSC’s failure to discuss the reasoning behind Aisha’s resignation attempt.
He told Sudanese newspaper — al-Jarida— today, Thursday, that the resignation included objective reasons, including constitutional and executive violations and fundamental issues such as the restructuring and unification of the regular forces.
“If these issues are resolved, Aisha can return to the sovereign, but if the sovereign continues in its current form, then it is a dilemma”, Siddiq said.
“If these problems are not resolved, we will not establish a democratic transition state, and it will be a new dictatorial state”, he added.
Marginalization of the Civilian Component
Responding to al-Jarida regarding the nomination of a representative from the Civil Forces Caucus to succeed the resigned member, Siddiq noted that “we must consider the issues she brought up rather than consider her replacement”
The caucus’ reporter denied Aisha receiving a TSC response to her resignation –or any communication from it– with the exception of a visit from two members from the civilian component, Muhammad al-Hassan al-Tai’ishi and Muhammad al-Faki.
Musa’s resignation came on the 30th of Ramadan, after the killing of two young men in the vicinity of the military headquarter during the commemoration of the second anniversary of the sit-in massacre.
Musa had complained in a press conference at the headquarters of Sudan’s news agency (SUNA) about the marginalization of the civilian component at the Council and at all government levels.
“The civilian component has transformed into a mere logistical executive apparatus that does not participate in decision-making, but rather concludes with acceptance only for pre-prepared decisions”, she said.
She pointed out that the “marginalization” of the civilian component made it single-handedly bear the costs of government failures and the bill for delaying the enforcement of justice.
