Sudanese opposition rejects African Union’s statement

Khartoum, Feb 4 (Prensa Latina) The opposition Forces for Freedom and Change on Friday rejected a recent statement from the Peace and Security Council of the African Union (AU), because it legitimized the coup d'état in Sudan.

The Council, the body in charge of conflict prevention, management and resolution in the continent, passed a resolution in late January welcoming the appointment of a civilian cabinet of technocrats.

It also called for general elections to be held within six months to a year.

However, the opposition coalition considered the text to be inconsistent with its stated position against military coups.

It further stressed that the recognition of the coup government of General Abdel Fattah al Burhan is a recognition of the coup itself and gives it clear legitimacy.

If the Council has recognized the coup and its government, then what is the reason for this call for dialogue, the political force questioned in its communiqué.

They explained that talking about elections before reestablishing the legitimacy of the transition period and ending the coup d’état is an interference in the country’s internal affairs.

The Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC)’s statement clearly disagrees with the African Union, which might complicate its plans for mediation between the Sudanese parties.

The Peace and Security Council played a crucial role in bringing about an agreement between the military council and the FFC groups in August 2019, following the fall (the previous April) of then President Omar al-Bashir.
