In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Sunday, SCP said the Central Committee has elected Mukhtar Abdalla as organizational secretary, al-Harith al-Toum as financial secretary, Al-Sir Babo as cultural secretary, Fathi al-Fadl as information secretary and official spokesperson and Mohi al-Din al-Galad as administrative secretary.

The statement added that the Central Committee also elected Siddig Youssef as political communication official, Salih Mahmoud as foreign relations official, Faiza Nugud as trade unions official, Hanadi al-Fadl as students official, Kamal al-Gizouli as writers bureau official, Sidgi Kaballo as economic bureau official and Masoud Ahmed al-Hassan as political secretary for Khartoum.

It pointed that the Central Committee has unanimously approved the final communiqué of the sixth convention following extensive discussions.

The statement further said the Central Committee will hold its next meeting early September.

The SCP was established in 1946 under the name of the “Anti Colonialism Front” and it was later known as the “Sudanese Movement for National Liberation” before its final name was adopted in 1956.
