FFC tells UN-Int'l effort: ‘Sudan’s future should be guided by the principles of the revolution’
The Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) held an emergency meeting on Sunday, discussing the joint effort with the United Nations, African Union, and Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), to support Sudan through the next phase of the political process.
The FFC stated that whilst they do not reject the joint international effort towards a stable Sudan, they stated that the desired pollical outcome should be underpinned by the guiding principles of the revolution.
In their meeting, the FFC clarified the base requirements of a “proper foundation” that would achieve the goals of the revolution for a new democratic political system. The organisation stated that they were “against the intervention of the people's armed forces in politics and against military coup”, and sought a solution based on the “principle of a single professional army that reflects the Sudanese diversity”.
The FFC went on to demand that the coup authority be fully committed to a peaceful transition and prosecute the forces that used live bullets against protestors. The also added that all political prisoners and detainees be released, and the state of emergency be abolished. The group also stated that Sudan should introduce climate preparation measures.
