January 3, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The secretary general of the Sudanese Islamic Movement (IM), Al-Zubair Ahmed Al-Hassan, has disclosed that they are developing new plans to rectify previous mistakes and said they would be brought up for discussion within two months.

Al-Zubair, who addressed the IM’s Darfur sector forum in North Darfur state capital of Al-Fashir on Thursday, said that leadership offices of the IM and the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) approved plans to correct mistakes which led to problems in the previous general elections.

He pointed that those plans would be presented to the IM and NCP branches in the states within two months for discussions in order to arrive at the 2015 elections with clear plans, strong structures, and more open and democratic laws and regulations.

The secretary general also said the IM adopted two cultural, social, and intellectual programs for 2014 including blood sanctity and renouncing tribalism and ethnicity.

He demanded IM members to actively influence reform within the IM and the NCP, calling upon rebel armed groups to join the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD).

The IM is the religious wing of the National Islamic Front (NIF) which overthrew the democratically elected government in Sudan in 1989.

In its current version, the IM was created by NCP following the 1999 schism with its former leader Hassan Al-Turabi and his supporters who formed the Popular Congress Party (PCP).

The IM was designed to exist as a parallel and broader political base to support the Islamist orientation of the NCP regime and rally Sufi and radical Islamist groups under its umbrella, while excluding the PCP.

Sudan’s ruling NCP dominates the IM with Sudan’s NCP former Vice President Ali Osman Mohammed Taha serving as its Secretary General from 2004 until 2012 when he was replaced by former finance minister al-Zubeir Mohamed al-Hassan.
