The General Secretary of the Communist Party of Sudan (CPoS), Mohamed El Khateeb, said in a press conference in Khartoum on Wednesday that his party is committed to the Declaration of Freedom and Change and to continue the struggle of the Sudanese people.

He stressed the unified status of the opposition, the need to involve the country, and to take decisions in harmony “to avoid the schemes dictated by maintaining the regime and its policies that do not reflect the interests of the people”.

El Khateeb accused the government of “sabotaging the facilities to distort the intifada and to justify the use of excessive violence”.

He praised the Sudanese people's adherence to the peaceful demonstrations despite the infiltration of the authorities and the firing of live bullets.

He said that peace is the only way to reach the end of the revolution. He also praised the demonstrators for creating new ways of people to demonstrate, walk and run and then regrouping again in a way that caught the attention of the public.

‘Cracks in government’

El Khateeb spoke of “cracks within the government and its allies”, said that “the regime is falling apart”, pointing to the press conference held by 22 parties participating in the government. He stressed that the people will maintain this position by their dissolution of the regime and their support of the uprising of the people.

But he stressed at the same time that these parties bear responsibility with the current regime for all the crimes committed. He criticised the memorandum, which the 22 parties intend to submit to Al Bashir, stressing that the parties do not call for the demise of Al Bashir’s regime.
