Dr Tijani Sese, the head of the Darfur Regional Authority (DRA), announced that the DRA has decided to change its way of dealing with recommendations issued during conferences and workshops.
On Tuesday the DRA chairman received the recommendations of the first Coordination Forum of the Darfur states Ministers of Youth and Sports in El Fasher. Sese stated on this occasion that a follow-up mechanism is needed for decisions and recommendations.
Sese said that “one of the incurable diseases hitting political life in Sudan is the large number of all kinds of meetings, and just as many recommendations that almost always end up in locked drawers”.
As an example he referred to the recommendations of the reconciliation conferences between warring Darfuri tribes in the past. “Recommendations about social peace have worked in reverse to ignite of a lot of fires in Darfur.”
Sese announced in this regard the formation of a DRA committee to assess the decisions and recommendations made during conferences and to identify the reasons why they were not implemented.
