“Elections will be held on time next year,” al-Moula said in remarks at a graduation ceremony in north Khartoum of 724 NISS officers tasked with combating riots in the presence of senior security and police officials.

Al-Moula went on to say that the NISS is ready to provide the appropriate atmosphere and bring stability and peace to citizens so that they can choose their next leadership, stressing that the elections process will not be subject to any manipulation whether conducted in Darfur or Khartoum or the Nuba Mountains.

The spy chief emphasised that they will not stand with their hands tied behind their backs in front of challenges facing the country and will deal firmly with any risks and will be in the frontlines “with their bare chest to protect the identity and resources of the country and the freedom of its citizens”.

Al-Moula also promised that the NISS will work hand in hand with the armed forces in conflict zones to protect the country from the “greedy and spiteful”.

He asserted that the summer campaign to obliterate rebellion by this year will continue as they promised president Omer Hassan al-Bashir, noting that rebel fighters ran away from the battlefield to South Sudan and are fighting there as “mercenaries”.

The Sudanese government has been fighting rebels for years in three fronts, including Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan. These groups formed a coalition under the name of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) two years ago.

NISS director of operations Major General Ali al-Naseeh said that this class of graduates underwent training on heavy weapons and its support, military tactics, lines of battle, different aspects of war, special operations for internal security and practical projects. He underscored that this class was marked by enthusiasm and represented all states of Sudan.
