Today, Wednesday, the joint tripartite mechanism announced the start of dialogue between the Sudanese parties, during the first week of next May, after ending their meetings with the parties.
The tripartite mechanism consists of the representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and head of UNITAMS Volker Peretz, the envoy of the African Union, Mohamed Hassan Ould Labbat, and the representative of the (IGAD) Ismail Aweys.
Peretz stated hat the mission of the tripartite mechanism of the African Union, the United Nations and IGAD is to gather the stakeholders in Sudan in one dialogue room with the aim of holding talks to complete the transitional period in Sudan.
In a press conference held in the capital, Khartoum, the head of the UNITAMS mission said yesterday, Wednesday, that the mechanism acts as a facilitator and a facilitator between the Sudanese parties for the success of the dialogue between stakeholders in order to reach a political agreement.
He stressed that during their meeting with stakeholders, such as political forces, the army, resistance committees, women’s groups, intellectuals and academics, it was found that they agreed on the Sudanese-Sudanese dialogue, in addition to the refusal of some political forces to meet at one table for dialogue.
“It is important for the Sudanese to agree first and to reach real elections that need a certain atmosphere,” he said, explaining that the guarantees for this are political will, good faith and institutional work.
Peretz indicated that dialogue about institutions is necessary, stressing that they will urge friendly and donor countries to help Sudan.
For his part, the AU envoy, Mohamed Hassan Ould Labat, said that the joint tripartite mechanism agreed to set the first week of next May for the start of talks between the parties.
He added that dialogue should avoid excluding some parties, especially resistance committees and stakeholders.
Igaden representative, Ismail Owais, said that the mechanism called on the authorities in Khartoum to provide the appropriate atmosphere for the launch of the dialogue, including the release of political detainees to ensure the success of the political dialogue between the various components.
He explained that the success of the dialogue would lead to political stability, which would lead to the establishment of the Constitutional Conference and the discussion of eastern Sudan issues and the challenges facing the political process in Sudan.
