The advisor to the Sudanese Prime Minister revealed disputes within the government’s military component, which he said threatens unity and integrity within the country.
The media advisor to the Sudanese Prime Minister, Faisal Mohamed Saleh, acknowledged that there are disputes within the military component that pose a threat to the country, its unity and safety.
He stressed on the need to reform and rehabilitate the military system.
Although the military repeatedly denied the existence of differences within the component, more than one official has warned about the dire consequences of these differences.
Saleh explained during an interview with the “Kalati” program on the Blue Nile channel that the mechanism for implementing the initiative proposed by the prime minister is left for consultation.
Dr. Abdallah Hamdok, the Sudanese Prime Minister, announced on Monday that meetings and consultations regarding the development of his initiative titled “National Crisis and Transition Issues – The Way Forward” are taking place.
The media advisor stated that the initiative may be representative of all institutions that have a relationship with the transition and the various political and social entities.
He noted that the armed forces played a political role after the revolution that should end at the end of the transitional period in order to turn into its professional duty.
Hamdok’s advisor said that the PM’s initiative can be developed during various discussions and—if consensus permits—it is better to turn it into a charter that people sign and then implement.
Saleh noted that the consultations are continuing, and confirmed that a number of parties have been contacted.
He added that within two to three weeks all the consultations could be completed.
He denied the acceleration of presenting the initiative due to the demonstrations announced on the thirtieth of June.
He stressed the right of the masses to go out and the state’s duty to protect the marches and provide safe paths for them.
“There is no fear or problem from June 30. Perhaps the only fear is that there are different parties who said they will leave and maybe a clash between them,” Faisal Mohammed Saleh said.
Regarding what the situation could be if the response was weak, he said: “Return to the masses to lead the correction process.”
He explained that the initiative is an attempt to address the crisis at the lowest cost.
Saleh expressed his fear of not responding to the initiative, saying that “It is very possible that the prices will be great and paid for again by the blood of our youth, sons, and daughters.”
