Nasser Eddin Al-Mahdi

Name: Nasser Eddin Al-Mahdi

Political Affiliation: Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF)


Nasser Eddin was relieved from his position as Deputy President of the National Umma Party (NUP) on 14 November 2012 by NUP President al-Sadiq al-Mahdi.

At a meeting in London, UK, Sadiq said that Nasser Eddin had to chose between the NUP and the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) rebel alliance, which he had joined in 2011 during a visit to Juba where he was tasked by the NUP to meet South Sudan’s leadership and the Sudanese rebel groups there. Nasser Eddin opted to remain in the SRF and leave his position in the Umma Party.

Nasser Eddin joined the SRF in 2011, while on a visit to Juba. He had been tasked by the Umma Party, to meet the rebel groups and to convince them to support Umma Party’s call for a negotiated settlement with the regime.

Sadiq said, after the Novemeber 2012 meeting, that he explained to Nasser Eddin that being a Deputy President of a political party is not compatible with also being a leading member of the SRF, as it would imply that the Umma Party had joined the rebel alliance.

After his meeting with Sadiq, Nasser Eddin issued a statement minimizing Mahdi’s decision saying that the National Congress Party regime remains their principle enemy stressing that they toppled Sadiq’s legitimate government in 1989.

Nasser Eddin further blamed "some political leaders" for their inaction adding this situation prevented the party from challenging the dictatorship and created divisions within the party.
