A former advisor to the former prime minister Abdallah Hamdok revealed the differences between leaders from both the military camp and the Freedom and Change coalition regarding the anticipated political settlement.

Khartoum: AlTaghyeer

Faiz al-Sileik revealed to the Al-Jarida newspaper that the settlement was “cooking on a slow fire” and that the differences were mostly about the military and its power in the country.
Mainly, al-Sileik revealed much of the differences to be concerned with the extent of the army’s political power and security/military reform.

Hamdok’s former advisor said he believes that the settlement was “inevitable” and that it was only a matter of time.

He also accused the military camp of stalling; trying to buy time until the resistance movement is tired.
Al-Sileik also accused Islamist parties in Sudan of contributing to ethnic tensions in the country and taking advantage of native administrations.

A political settlement between the military establishment holding the reins of power in the country, and the Freedom and Change coalition, has been rumored to be “very close to completion” earlier this month.
