The Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) in Sudan revealed on Sunday that discussions are taking place between civilian and military parties to end the political crisis and appoint a prime minister as soon as possible.
“Civilian and military stakeholders are under pressure to finalize the process. So, discussions are taking place and there is an agreement to accelerate the completion of the political process and choose a prime minister who will lead the new transitional government,” Yasir Arman, an FFC spokesman told a press conference on Sunday.
The FFC also welcomed the decision to form a joint committee to monitor the developments in Sudan.
Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, head of the Sovereign Council and his deputy Mohamed Hamdan Daglo “Hemetti” had announced forming the committee at a meeting they held on Saturday.
On December 5, 2022, the pro-democracy civil forces and the military leaders signed a framework agreement. But al-Burhan and Hemetti had previously diverged over the implementation of the framework agreement and the expansion of Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in the country.
In a statement issued on Saturday, al-Burhan and Hemetti decided to end their rift and form a joint security committee from the regular forces, the relevant state agencies and the (signatory) armed movements to follow up on the security situation in the country.
Arman described the meeting of al-Burhan and Hemetti as good and said it brought about a positive change in favor of civil rule and democratic transition.
He called for creating a suitable atmosphere for establishing good relations between the army and the RSF.
“The RSF are a fait accompli, they number more than 100,000 fighters, and they have interests and fears that must be addressed,” said Arman.
Arman conditioned the initiation of the security and military reform workshop on an agreement between the army and the RSF.
