Lieutenant-General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo “Hemedti,” Vice-President of Sudan’s Sovereignty Council, urged Sudan’s civil administrations on Saturday to support the country’s national consensus, emphasizing the necessity of their neutrality. “
According to the Transitional Sovereignty Council’s Information Department, Hemedti stressed during his meeting with civil administration leaders that “the situation in which the country is living puts it at a crossroads” due to “the spread of strife and the growth of hate speech, racism, and regionalism.”
He mentioned that “Some people have continued to incite hate among Sudanese to attain specific conceptions and objectives without regard for the country’s stability.
Hemedti emphasized, “the necessity for political parties to unite on a common vision that promotes the best interests of the country,” adding that “no elections can take place without political parties.” He also expressed concern for the “severe degradation that affected the country as a result of divisions,” stating that “the Sudanese consensus will return Sudan to its normal status.”
The Sovereignty Council Vice-President emphasized the “importance of the civil administration carrying out its historical obligation to interact with all political and social components to urge them to advance in the path of national reconciliation.”
He also emphasized that “everyone will fight those who oppose reconciliation and seek to expose it in front of the people,” and that “the definitive solution to the Sudan dilemma can only be accomplished through the ballot boxes.”
In another context, Hemedti urged the Native Administration to focus on resolving tribal issues in several regions, particularly north and west Darfur, which he claimed had “taken a disastrous turn with the emergence of regional and racial attitudes between the parties.”
He reported that the UN effort to resolve the Sudan problem had been approved by the Sovereignty Council, providing that the head of UNITAMS would be a “facilitator and not a mediator between the sides.” He emphasized that the Transitional Council is not antagonistic to or rejects the international community, but rather refuses to intervene in the country’s internal affairs.
