Sudan’s 2nd Vice President, Hassabo Abdel-Rahman, replaced Al-Hag Youssef Adam as head of the political sector, while Al-Dirdeeri Mohamed Ahmed succeeded the presidential assistant, Ibrahim Ghandour, as head of the foreign relations sector and Farah Mustafa took over thought and culture sector instead of Amin Hassan Omer.

Three heads of sectors retained their positions including head of the organization sector, Hamid Sideeg, head of professions sector, Samia Ahmed Mohamed, and head of economic sector, Saber Mohamed Al-Hassan.

The presidential assistant and NCP deputy chairman for party affairs, Ibrahim Ghandour, pointed in press statements following the meeting that changes in the secretariats would be announced successively within the next two days.

He said that leadership office expressed hope that the recently elected executive committee of the Bar Association plays its role in achieving the national unity, stressed that leadership office congratulated NCP lawyers for winning the elections, praising its fairness and transparency.

Ghandour added that leadership office discussed the recent changes in the Sudan Workers Trade Union Association (SWTUA) besides discussing a proposal for forming the higher executive committee to prepare for the NCP’s fourth general convention.

Last December, president Bashir announced cabinet shakeup that saw the departure of several long-time NCP figures from their governmental posts including former vice-president Ali Osman Taha, presidential assistant and NCP vice-chairman Nafie Ali Nafie and Oil minister Awad al-Jaz.

There were conflicting explanations given for the government shakeup. Some observers and media reports attributed the move to strong disagreements within the NCP and the government.
