Sudan’s SCP, unionist parties welcome Paris Declaration


August 11, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese Communist Party (SCP) and the opposition unionist forces have welcomed the Paris Declaration signed between the National Umma Party (NUP) and the rebel alliance of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), considering it a positive step towards unifying opposition forces and overthrowing the regime.

The NUP and SRF leaders, Sadiq al-Mahdi and Malik Agar, on Friday signed the “Paris Declaration” which calls to end war and to engage in a genuine national dialogue aiming to restore democracy in Sudan

The SCP said in a statement received by Sudan Tribune on Monday that the regime is hindering the national dialogue, describing al-Mahdi’s move as positive particularly as the NUP and the SRF are opposing the regime.

It said that Paris Declaration would lead to an agreement on unifying opposition forces, stressing the politburo will take a detailed look at the declaration and offer its opinion about it.

The SCP further said the NUP recently announced intention to rejoin the opposition alliance of the National Consensus Forces (NCF), pointing that the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) led by Mohamed Osman al-Merghani also threatened to suspend its participation in the national dialogue process.

The Sudanese communists considered these announcements a step towards unifying opposition forces.

“It seems that change [in the NUP and DUP positions] would take place”, the statement added.

Meanwhile, the opposition unionist forces have expressed support for the Paris Declaration.

They said in a statement signed by Siddiq al-Hindi of the Unionist Movement, Galaa al-Azhari of the Unified Democratic Unionist Party, and Youssef Mohamed Zain of the National Unionist Party that the declaration is a positive move towards unifying military and civilian opposition.

They stressed the declaration brought the NUP back to its natural position and leading role among the opposition forces in order to remove the regime either through dialogue or popular uprising.

The unionist forces further said the outlines of the declaration opened the door for the convergence of all political forces in order to detail it and draft its programs.

They noted that they were the first political forces who met with the SRF in October 2012, in Kampala where they signed a memorandum of understanding which paved the way for signing the New Dawn Charter in January 2013.

    The Sudanese Communist Party (SCP) is the Sudanese devils and Satans party that destroyed Darfur and Sudan.
    SCP is still for satanic evil plans as he brought the Satan Numeiri for power and killed many Darfurians on JULY the 2nd, 1976.

    Russia has dismantled all the satanic ideas of communists made by USSR and buried them for ever. Today Russia is great and well developed and the powerful nation in our earth. (NATURAL RESOURCES)
    Russia has great national resources and started open mindedness with the great Africa.

    SCP has marginalized and degraded Darfur, Nuba, Blue Nile and South Sudan.

    SCP is the gang of racists who are behind the implementation of "Divide & Rule" among the Sudanese peoples.

    “Have communists contributed nothing to history? I mean, other than 90 million dead bodies, if the French scholars estimate the global total correctly.”

    Communism was the greatest killer. 100 million men, women and children have been murdered by socialism so far, and the killing continues today, notably in North Korea. In terms of body count, socialism is by far the most evil religion, the most evil ideology of any sort, of all time.

    SCP has all the evil plans to destroy Darfur and all the marginalized Sudanese regions.
