The document said these elements constitute the ground for the country's overture on the world and removal of all siege and all criticisms that have been impeding to a great extent the country's chances of merger with the international economy

The document argued that in all these element the person of Mr./ President Omar Al Bashir, stands as a common denominator who carried out his duties and shouldered his responsibilities with regard to the peace agreements and to the implementation of what remains to be implemented of the provision of those agreements so that the country would move forwards to the implementation of the agreed upon developmental plans that have been set in the country strategic plans that would be achieved in the year 2015 within the country's developmental goals


The document said for the aforementioned reasons the national unity and other parties were convinced to nominate Omar al Bashir to stand for the coming presidential elections set to be held in April this year so that he would complete the national role he has been shouldering and also because he stands out as a national symbol, a security valve for attaining the higher lofty national objectives set in those agreements and accords


They said this would require a deep and thorough dialogue with members and leadership of the National Congress Party and other political parties so that a national accord formula would be reached in the political, economic, social and administrative arenas that would meet the requirements looked for by the citizens and their aspirations for and honorable, free and secure life
