The coup supporting breakaway faction of the Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC) said that the cause of the economic crisis in Sudan was due to the government’s inability to choose a Prime Minister to replace the resigned Dr. Abdallah Hamdok.
In a meeting that lasted for hours, the coup supporting FFC faction said that the absence of a Prime Minister, a position the government has been unable to occupy ever since the resignation of the former Prime Minister Dr. Abdallah Hamdok, has been the leading cause of the economic crisis in the country.
The meeting also agreed that the current political crisis the country is living through cannot be escaped unless a national dialogue is introduced.
A statement published regarding the meeting also noted that a number of local, regional and international initiatives were being looked into, and that priority was being given to African solutions for an “African problem.”
The meeting also revealed that a specialized committee has been formed to help Sudan get through its economic crisis and help with the deteriorating local currency value.
The breakaway FFC faction had also noted its support for the specialized committee formed to look into the now-disbanded Empowerment Removal Committee’s decisions; which it had described as “negative decisions.”
The coup supporting Freedom and Change faction also welcomed promises by groups in the east and north of the country to not close down the Port Sudan port in the east and the Northern Artery road in the north, and allow national exports to go out.
