Sudan’s general elections are set to be held in April 2015, but opposition parties are refusing to participate.
The opposition parties refuse to participate in the next year election demanding to postpone it and to form a transitional government to implement the resolutions that a national dialogue process can reach.
In August, the DUP chief, who has resided in the British capital for the past year, met with a delegation of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF), stressing the need to promote peace and reconciliation in Sudan.
Al-Mirghani also expressed his support for the national dialogue process, pointing to the need to include all political forces and adding that the participation of the opposition National Umma Party (NUP) is important.
