The Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party revealed it will be taking legal measures against anyone who tries to implicate its name in the failed coup attempt that took place on Tuesday morning.

The party’s leader, Tariq Kandyk, denied – in statements made to AlTaghyeer – that Ba’ath had any connection to the failed attempt, or had any of its members targeted with arrest.

He accused the remnants of the former regime spreading lies about his party, and affirmed the Baath’s keenness to move the transitional period to its end, in order to reach political pluralism.

Kandyk stated that the “Ba’ath party does not need a coup against the authority.”

He pointed out that there are a number of their party members present in the Sovereign Council, the Ministers and other executive bodies.

The Ba’athist leader stressed that the party’s legal sector is in the process of initiating legal procedures and opening complaints against anyone who tries to make the party implicit in the failed coup, and will clearly address these accusations politically.

There were rumors that the Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party was involved in the coup attempt that took place on Tuesday morning in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, with the arrest of the party’s secretary, Ali al-Rih al-Sanhouri.
