November 27, 2011 (KHARTOUM) – The son of a major opposition leader in Sudan issued a statement saying that he has no intention of joining the new government, contrary to earlier media reports.

Mohamed al-Hassan al-Mirghani told the Hurriyat news portal by phone from the United States that he will not take part in a “war government to fight my people and countrymen. I will not bear the sins of 22 years of corruption and tyranny”.

Al-Mirghani’s father Mohamed Osman has confirmed this week that the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) he leads accepted the offer by the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) to join the upcoming government.

The DUP chief has been strongly opposed to participating for months before agreeing this week. Many leading figures within the party have fiercely criticized the move and warned of looming division within the DUP as a result.

Al-Mirghani’s son also criticized his father’s decision in a rare move of its kind.

“The leadership council is not the competent authority to make such big decisions, which are the prerogative of the elected political bureau alone” he said.

Mohamed al-Hassan al-Mirghani also stressed that he will not assume any position in the government dismissing reports that he is DUP nominee to become assistant of Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir.

    True man. I never see an Afro-Arab-Sudanese who speak truths like this before. Young man, your father is old and can’t think good enough these days. It is your times to take over the party and fight for the rights of all Sudanese. How can a clean-hand man like you be tricked to join a genicidal government which is on the brink of collapse? Does this old man thinks really?

      this government participation by DUP will identify who are really for regime change and who are not, and that exactly what the Son of DUP leader reveal, DUP is going to extinction if they allowed their leader to enforced his will to participate in the dirty politics of the NIF regime. Instead of unite with other forces to overthrow this appendix in the body of Sudan

    Hells of you who cares of your rejection in joining the next new government of Basher. Those of NCP shouldn’t be worry because they are the one ruling you all this time and if they fell sympathize to welcome you in their government and you feel of not joining it, it’s you with your fathers/ mams who will be suffering from bad treatment of theirs regardless of others.

      Mike Mike,
      You first need to know the current government of Bashir reflecting it back to core concept of human rights aspect if your are really a man with vision unlike bashir whose vision is killing and burning people`s houses, Would you as a God fearing human being accept taking up a position? Don`t just look of what to eat but consider the lives of your fellow humans!
