The Forces Freedom and Change – political incubator for the Sudanese government – said that, had the failed coup attempt proved successful, it would have yielded disastrous results for both civilian and military government components, and that the biggest loser would have been the Sudanese public.
The Forces of Freedom and Change described the failed coup d’etat aiming to overthrow the transitional government as a “suicide”, and stated that there is no military without a political incubator backing it.
Freedom and Change spokesperson Jafaar Hassan remarked that had the coup proven successful, the military half of the government would have ended up before a firing squad, the civilian half’s fate would be unknown, and the Sudanese people would have to bear the brunt of it all.
Hassan said during statements made to the Blue Nile TV’s “As Follows” that the transitional period in Sudan had undergone “more than 3 coups during three years” and affirmed that the conspiracies against the transitional period will not stop.
He assured that there was no friction between both the military and civilian components of the transitional government, but rather friction between two camps consisting of both civilian and military elements, with one camp striving for a democratic transition and the other opposing it.
The FFC spokesperson confirmed that the Sudanese revolution has roots all over the country, represented in Sudan’s various resistance committees.
He stated that Sudan was now on the right track and that efforts of the reconstructive work done on the Sudanese economy are now becoming more visible.
Hassam emphasized that the democratic transition carries great benefits for the military institution, and that unity is needed in “purging evil from both civilian and military institutions.”
Regarding the yet to be formed Legislative Council, Hassan noted out that there is a circulating misconception regarding the council’s composition.
The 60 seat Legislative Council, as per the spokesperson, is not the sole proprietorship of political parties and civilians, but rather a partnership between both civilian and military sides of the transitional council.
The FFC spokesperson, addressing the military component, said that the worldwide condemnation of the recent failed coup attempt reveals the international community’s utter disapproval of a coup d’etat within Sudan.
Regarding the recent crisis in the eastern part of Sudan, Hassan acknowledged that the region does indeed suffer from great poverty, illiteracy, and hunger despite it being the portal through which all strategic goods enter and leave Sudan from.
Hassan added that the native administration in East Sudan has exacerbated the issue by positioning itself as the sole spokesperson for the eastern region, and even Sudan as a whole.
He said that the Turk, the leader of the Hadandawa tribe, represents neither the entire eastern bloc nor the entire Hadandawa population, and that the demands he is currently making are the same demands made by the now dissolved and banned National Congress Party.
He accused those who are currently closing and barricading roads leading to East Sudan as individuals alarmed by the presence of the Empowerment Removal Committee, being led by remnants of the deposed regime, dreading the day the case file for the East Sudan Reconstruction fund – which the spokesperson described as “riddled with corruption” – is opened.
The FFC spokesperson, addressing the people of Sudan’s east, stated that “If Turk truly represents you, then call on him to call on the [Empowerment] Removal to return your stolen money.”
