SRF rebels endorse new document on how to govern Sudan


October 6, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — Rebel movements members of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) signed on Thursday 4 October a new position paper detailing how Sudan should be governed once the regime of President Omer Al-Bashir is brought down.

SRF rebels signed in November 2011 a founding charter of their alliance in which they speak about the use of all means to topple the regime and to establish a democratic and secular state. They also formed a joint military command and decided to carry out attacks everywhere in Sudan even in Khartoum.

In a ceremony organised in the Ugandan capital Kampala, SRF leaders signed a text called Re-structuring of Sudanese State Document. The 20 page agreement, seen by Sudan Tribune, says there would be an interim period of six years to reorganise the Sudanese state and to provide more powers to the provinces.

The country during the transitional period will be led by a collegial body chaired by a president and the state governors who would be vice-presidents . A women representative will also be appointed as deputy-president .

The government would be composed of the SRF forces, political parties and representatives of youth and students groups.

The document also provides to allocate a 30% share for women in the interim national government.

Dominated by the idea of "failure of the current Sudanese state", the signed text speaks extensively about the need to give the regions more powers and to establish a federal system in Sudan. But it did not give more indications about the kind of federalism to which it calls.

It provides the need to establish an independent federal authority to decide on the ownership of land. It also speaks about the expulsion of new settlers and to return the land (Hawakir) to its original owners.

The text also calls to establish strategic relations with South Sudan without elaborating on this issue, and to dissolve the security and intelligence services .

Malik Aggar, SRF leader, said the main purpose of this document is to settle "how Sudan can be government" not "who will govern it". He stressing that they intend through this document to remediate the failure of Sudanese state.

The document was signed by Malik Agar for the SPLM-North, Abdel Wahid Al-Nur, for Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM-AW), Gibril Ibrahim for Justice and Equality Movement and Minni Minnawi for SLM-MM.

The text was also inked by Al-Tom Hajo and Naser Edin Al-Mahdi who are dissident respectively from the Democratic Unionist Party and Umma National Party.

The SRF last June rejected a charter endorsed by the opposition National Consensus Forces inside the country stressing they have to be consulted before to establish such document.

The Sudanese rebel groups said they aim to create one political and military structure and dissolve their groups.

      Sudan has been a failed state for a long while, the time has come to put things in order. No more dominance by one group over another on groundless basis. Arabized tribes will soon need to seriously rethink their position regarding their future within Sudan.

      Muhammad ali.
      the SRF is not failing, but very soon you will be getting yourselves somewhere in Middle East because Sudan is theirs whatsoever the case is.
      South Sudanese would have failed. so, it is a cancer to NCP thugs.

    Mohammed, I thought you would be prepared for war because you now know the bases of Sudanese rebels are not in South Sudan, but in Kampla, Uganda. Do you have any question? The idea that if South Sudan signed security arrangements, then the aspirations of the people of Nuba Mountain, Blue Nile, and Darfur will die as claimed will notbe realized, period. They will fight until the get their freedom.

      Lt Genral Deng, with due respect you are general or so you say, if I may ask a question! Is the LRA going to cross all of SS and come to us? If so is the case, then you are responsible.The same way if you Ugandan crossed your borders, you will be responsible and we will attack them in your land if you failed to stop them.General,LRA has no capabilites or logistics to go for more than 1000 miles!

        General, we are happy to have peace with you as neighbours, we don’t care about Uganda.Musevini can conspire to assasinate somebody flying in a " flying object" whom he feels a threat to his dreems of expansion, but he can’t deal with us.He had tried before and he was sent home crying.His aim is not us, we are far away.He aims to control the "punch of idiots" closer to him. Good luck for u with hi

          Good move SRF and as in regards to our friend Mohamed Ali, the real solution to Sudanese problem is for the Arabized Sudanese to rethink the ways they dominate the country and marginalize the natives of Sudan, the main cause which forced South Sudan to break away.
          Again, the Arabized tribes in Sudan have to seriously rethink or else, the natives of Sudan will not rest until they get their God

            given rights. This is their native land inwhich they humanly welcomed the then weak Arab tribes that were forced out in the Middle East during dark ages inwhich some stonger Ara b tribes would forced the weaker tribes and make them what was known a s mamaliks.
            The Sudanese Arab tribes should have been grateful for the natives of Sudan and thank them for their kindness but instead, they turned wild

        You seems to be displaying your ignorance publicly! Better up-date yourself first before bursting like a slut. A rebellion is a force that arise to fight oppressors just like what the SPLA did, and since Khartoum never learnt from it’s past mistakes, SRF came up and they are determined to overthrow the regime & the will happen. For your info, LRA is already in Chad, so watch out!

    You came up with a new and good idea for the Sudan.Sudan is for every Sudanese and should not be dominated by the jalaba, do not allow that to continue what so ever difficult situation you are in.Work towards that path.Africans should help SRF in their struggle to bring equality in Sudan.I am looking forward towards you becoming one organisation and one political party.

      Is right for NCP to say Sudan is an arab country? Look at those Liberators are they really Arabs? Are those denying the existence of Blacks in Sudan real Sane? As long as the rights of black Africans in sudan are denied, Sudan will not be at Peace.Weak up Sudanese leaders stop racism if you want peace.Racism in South Africa ended and will end in Sudan As well.
