February 23, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The University of Khartoum witnessed violent clashes on Sunday between students from the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) and those from the Reform Now Party (RNP) which was formed last December by NCP figures who were expelled from the party.

RNP students claimed that their NCP peers attacked an event they were holding using Molotov cocktail bombs and skewers in the assault which occurred inside the university campus.

"The NCP students and security personnel used Molotov and skewers but the determination and resilience of the RNP students pushed them back wagging the tails of defeat and disappointment," said a statement issued by the RNP.

The press release accused the security services and "sick hands" driven by "small minds" of working to stop the approach and the spirit of dialogue and peace.

It went on to describe this behavior as childish and completely contrary to the NCP calls for dialogue and reconciliation that enforces lack of freedom and justice.

In another context, the RNP stressed in a separate statement that any political dialogue will not bear fruit under the current oppression and repression.

"The partial handling of the issues of the nation and continuing to adopt partial solutions to the country’s problems is the core of the disaster and the issues must be addressed in the framework of a comprehensive national consensus," the RNP said.

The RNP said their vision to break the deadlock of the current situation is based on the importance of restoring lost trust between the NCP and the masses of the people of Sudan and other political forces to take practical steps is to launch freedoms, declare a general amnesty and release all political detainees in a show of goodwill.

The party also called for the establishment of a mechanism for national reconciliation of all political forces without the exclusion of any party from the political equation, including the NCP to sit in a roundtable for the adoption of a comprehensive solution .

This mechanism should enjoy the mandate and necessary authority to carry out a review of the laws relating the electoral process in 2015, the Parties Act, the National Security Act and the Electoral Commission law in accordance with specific deadlines so it does not go on indefinitely.

The presidency, in its capacity as the highest authority in the country, would then endorse the recommendations and decisions of the mechanism, the RNP said.

"Other than that we reject any attempt by the NCP to remake the scenario of the 2010 elections" the statement added.

The RNP head Ghazi Salah al-Deen al-Attabani was expelled from the NCP last October in the wake of a memo he drafted, along with more than two dozen party figures the month before, calling for the reversal of a decision to lift fuel subsidies and an end to the violent measures taken against demonstrators who took to the streets to protest.
