December 18, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The coalition of mainstream opposition parties in Sudan, the National Consensus Forces (NCF), has reiterated its commitment to topple the regime of president Omer Al-Bashir by all legitimate means, urging citizens across the country to prepare for a “decisive battle”.

The NCF made its call in “Omdurman Political Declaration”, which it issued on Tuesday following a meeting of its leaders at the headquarters of the National Umma Party (NUP) in Omdurman. Besides the NUP, the NCF comprises the Islamist Popular Congress Party and the Sudanese Communist Party (SCP) among others.

In the declaration, NCF termed the proposed 2013 budget as “a war not a development” budget, citing the fact that it allocates 8 billion Sudanese pounds to defense and security while giving only 1 billion to health and education. The opposition coalition said the budget also contains increased government spending which debunks government claims about austerity.

The declaration warned that the country was rapidly sliding towards the brink of collapse due to the government’s policies of corruption, repression, social and ethnic injustices as well as economic deterioration.

The NCF held the government of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) responsible for the secession of South Sudan, the war in the western region of Darfur and the southern regions of South Kordofan and Blue Nile, plus the state of “cold war” with South Sudan.

The NCF declared its strong support for the “legitimate” demands of the people of Darfur, South Kordofan, Blue Nile and Abyei. It further condemned the death of four Darfur students at Al-Gazira University in Madani this month, calling for an immediate investigation into the killing that activists blame security authorities for.

NCF chairman Farouq Abu Issa was briefly detained last week for speaking against the death of the students which sparked demonstrations across the country’s universities.

    All Sudan opposition leaders are old people (Jalakeem) and will really change nothing, they don’t have any real strategy on how to change and how to proceed after that!!
    Don’t you see them as Jalakeem in this picture:

      Jalaby, I agree these old guards have no strategy for Sudan and its neighbour__South Sudan. They are merely survivors whose main objecive is power. What practically will NCF do if they overthrow satanic Bashir and his cohorts in the NCP?

      You are a liar, what about Yasir, Malik, Hiliu, and Abdelwad Nur if you are really looking for opposition leader and young to replace NCP that cling to power. Coward Arabs in Sudan can’t join Arab-spring even if are given extra hundred years to do so

      Yes They are Jalakeen 100% !!! But mid aged and young one are failing Sudan too. They are fanatics, extremits, terrorits, reckless generation and lacking the sense of nationalism !!! Example: Recent deadly clashes between SAF and fanatic Islamists who were training in the camp deep inside Sudan in order to go and fight in Mali, Somalia .. These young extremists were recent University graduates !!!

      The NCF is a power hungry group. What did they do as far as "failed Sudan unity" was concerned? Let them prepare for their own "decisive battle" alone. Look they regard about the break away of South Sudan. South Sudanese should exercise care and watch out that group.

    Northen major political parties are not serious, because the childern of its leaders are governmen officials. those major political parties are the problem in sudan that led South Sudan to separate in the first place.
    believeing on old poitical ideologies of Islamazition and Arabnazition will separate Sudan more.

      Helloearth,
      All Northern Sudanese are the same when it comes to South-North old rivalries. Traditional parties did their part to suppress and repress for many a year. Then later on came the NCP who pretended and tried to steal an old show of bringing peace to Sudan___South Sudan for that matter. What good difference did it make? Is it not continuous dishonoring of agreements?
