Sudan’s NCP hails meeting with DUP


May 16, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) welcomed the outcome of a meeting that took place yesterday with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) amid growing discontent within the latter about its marginal role in the broad-based government formed last December.

The DUP chief Mohamed Osman al-Mirghani met with Sudan’s Vice President al-Haj Adam Yusuf to discuss their partnership in the cabinet and political development in the country.

Sources told Sudan Tribune that al-Mirghani conveyed to Yusuf his assertions that they have no plans to withdraw from the government despite calls from within the DUP to the contrary.

Many in the opposition party argue that the NCP does not consult with them in the decision making process and is not implementing their partnership agreement in good faith. From the start, the DUP’s move to join the government drew widespread anger within the party’s base and some of al-Mirghani’s own aides.

The NCP spokesperson Badr al-Deen Ahmed Ibrahim said that they were able to resolve many issues with the DUP and have now turned a new page in their relationship.

He warned opposition parties placing their bets on mobilising people to take the street and oust the regime that they are engaging in an unpatriotic act.

Ibrahim added that the people can differentiate between the regime and the country, which they consider a red line because they enjoy a high level of awareness.

    yes, Unity is strong.

    but what i want is the NCP to meet with the SRF. we need to make them understand that they are northern sudanese and not south sudanese. they must understand the fact that the people of sudan wont allow someone holding the flag of south sudan to lead them. the SRF attacks and runs away. waste of money,bullets, time and lives.at the end of the day we are all northern sudanese

    I want the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to know that they didn’t any kind of justice when they were in power.

    Oppositions in North Sudan are very confused, they don’t know how to get the Ideas from Egyptian people and Libyan people. Some are fearing for their lives and others get bribes by NCP so that, there will be no Arabs uprising to turns indictment down. Well, belief me or not the government of indictment wouldn’t be exist in this world mark my word. Sudan nation will be divided in to four nations

    There must be an agreement made with the SRF!

    this is just one faction of JEM before the death of Khalil in 2008


    i cant believe that so many brothers are fighting for the enemy of sudan. they cant take over sudan but they also cant all get arrested.
    SAF would really benefit from so many fighters
