Hamdok presents briefing on framework agreement to members of resistance committees

Dr. Abdalla Hamdok, has hailed the martyrs of the Sudanese revolution and the martyrs of the glorious December revolution, who poured their pure blood on the march of the people towards freedom, peace and justice, and made this possible.

 The Prime Minister urged all young people to continue with issues of grassroots building in a way that contributes to laying the foundation for a real and sustainable democratic transformation, and to immediately start local elections to become laboratories for local democracy, noting that this process will produce real elected representatives of local communities who express the interests of citizens’ issues in their neighborhoods.

This came when the Prime Minister met at the premises of the cabinet Sunday a number of members of the resistance committees in the capital and the states.

During the meeting, the Prime Minister praised the role of the resistance committees in guarding the revolution and the importance of dealing with the framework agreement, which represents an entry point for creating a national project, given that this is the basic guarantee for moving forward on the requirements of civil democratic transformation.

Dr. Hamdok gave an enlightenment to the attendees about the political agreement that was signed on November 21, explaining in this regard that he was motivated to sign the agreement by four main reasons, which are to spare the blood of young people, preserve the important gains made during the past two years, most notably the removal of Sudan from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism and the deserved return of the country to the international community and the international development community, in addition to what has been achieved in the fields of peace and economic reform, in which breakthroughs and achievements occurred, as well as the resumption of the path of civil democratic transformation as the most important goals of the glorious December revolution.

During the meeting, a number of guests from the resistance committees in the capital and the states raised a number of questions and proposals, most notably the necessity of involving youth and revolutionary forces with professional and academic competencies in state institutions, establishing a higher council for youth and entrepreneurship besides issues related to the background of signing the political agreement and other issues of comprehensive reform in the state and society.

Responding to the questions,  Dr. Hamdok said that protection and implementation of the Juba Agreement for Peace in Sudan is a collective responsibility that requires participation of all, including the signatories, civil society organizations and resistance committees, calling for the necessity of concerted joint efforts for the issue of building peace and achieving it in a comprehensive manner, and complementing it with dialogue with the SPLM-N led by Commander al-Hilu and SLM led by Abdel Wahid el-Nur.

Dr. Hamdok called on the youth to contribute to the preparation of the national charter in order to protect the remainder of the transitional period and to work with the rest of the youth, political and societal forces to address a fundamental issue represented in the electoral process and the consequent processes such as the constitutional national conference.

The Prime Minister reiterated that the coming government represents a government of competencies, expressing his wishes that young people will be keen to participate in it, and stressed that the next government will give the Gezira Scheme utmost importance to bring it back better than its first course as it represents a lever for the Sudanese economy, pointing out that the country enjoys great resources and capabilities.

The attendees of members of the resistance committees in the capital and the states affirmed their support for the transitional period.
