Sudanese veteran Islamist opposition leader, Hassan Al-Turabi, has called for unification of the political parties and forming major alliances which would lead at end to a comprehensive unity similar to that in Europe
In a speech he delivered before the general convention of the Federal Umma Party (FUP) on Saturday, The Secretary General of the Popular Congress Party (PCP) pointed out that the political activity has been suffering from tribalism which created divisions and conflicts and prevented building of coalitions,
"Someday we want to be together like Europe. We want to extend East and West and beyond the border “he confirmed
Al-Turabi noted that tribulations and the tribalism which plagued the political parties made all people forget religion, pointing out that if federation had taken root in Sudanese parties souls, South Sudan wouldn’t have seceded
PCP has formulated the same demands but remained committed to the process hoping that the NCP would shift its initial positions and accept the implement the confidence building measures including the postponement of elections.
The PCP’s political secretary Kamal Omer said in previous statements that his party would not participate in the election and criticized publically, for the first time, the organization of the election before the national dialogue.
“We are boycotting because there is no favorable climate for elections, there are wars in the country and there are no freedoms,” Omer said.
“To hold elections without a national agreement makes the dialogue absurd,” he added.
