Sudan .. Differences within the forces of freedom and change postpone the formation of the sovereign council

2019-08-19T06:40:57.268Z



The Sudanese parties barely signed the transitional agreement on Saturday, until some obstacles began to surface, where the forces of freedom and change asked the military council 48 hours to resolve its candidates for the sovereign council, after internal objections to some of the candidates.

On Sunday evening, the leader of the Coalition of Forces for Freedom and Change announced the names of the five candidates for the membership of the Sovereign Alliance: Aisha Musa, Siddiq Tower, Hassan Sheikh Idriss, Mohammed al-Faki Suleiman and Taha Othman.

In contrast, the Central Doctors Committee of Sudan and the Union of Forensic Doctors and Journalists Network, in statements, objected to some candidates.

The network of journalists said that the nomination of Taha Othman from the pool of professionals for a position in the sovereign council "is contrary to the decisions of the gathering."

She added that "the decisions of the gathering not to participate in the sovereign and the Council of Ministers."

In turn, the Sudan Medical Association forensic legitimacy said "our era was not to participate in the structures of the transitional authority at the level of the Council of Sovereignty and the Council of Ministers, but what happened today from the submission of a member of the Assembly to the membership of the sovereign council is a violation of this era."

The structures of power during the transitional period comprise three councils: the Sovereign Council, the Council of Ministers and the Legislative Council.

For his part, lawyer Taha Othman - candidate of the forces of freedom and change for membership of the sovereign council - apologized for accepting the nomination, after a wave of protests against his candidacy.

Al Jazeera Net learned from a Sudanese diplomatic source who preferred not to be named, that the military council and the forces of freedom and change agreed to appoint Raja Nicholas Abdul Messih as a member of the Sudanese sovereign council.

The source said that Raja, a Sudanese Coptic adviser in the Ministry of Justice, was chosen for the eleventh seat, which the constitutional document stipulates that the parties agree on.

On the other hand, the same source revealed that the candidate of the forces of freedom and change for the post of Prime Minister, economic expert Abdullah Hamdouk, will arrive on Monday in Khartoum.

The source expected that Hamdouk will be sworn in before the sovereign council on Tuesday, before the start of the formation of the Sudanese government expected.

Both the junta and representatives of the Freedom and Change Forces held a meeting at the presidential palace on Sunday to agree on the 11th candidate for the sovereign council.

Later steps
Once the agreement is completed, the chairman of the junta, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, will issue a constitutional decree establishing the Sudanese sovereign council and appointing its members.

The military junta and the forces of Sudan's Declaration of Freedom and Change on Saturday finally signed the "Constitutional Declaration" and "Political Declaration" documents on structures and power-sharing in the interim period.

The forces of change and the junta agreed on a timetable for a 39-month transition, during which they would share power and end with elections.

The Sovereignty Council is composed of 11 members, five civilians nominated by the forces of change, five soldiers nominated by the junta, and another civilian member agreed by both parties.

Like Saturday, popular celebrations continued with the signing of the agreement, which the Sudanese hope will ensure a better life and greater freedoms.
