May 15, 2021 (KHARTOUM) - The parties and civil society organizations members of the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) have agreed to reform the structures of the ruling coalition and to reunite its groups.

Upon the initiative of the National Umma Party (NUP), some 28 groups met on Friday 14 May to discuss the challenges facing the democratic transition in Sudan, after the unjustified killing of two youth last week by military personnel suspected of supporting the former regime.

In a statement released after the meeting on Saturday, the NUP said the participants had frank discussions about the challenges facing the transitional period and the problems within the FFC.

"The participants presented constructive proposals to reform the (FFC). They stressed the need to develop the Declaration for Freedom and Change, broaden the base of participation, restructure it, and work for the unity of all the forces of the revolution," reads the statement.

Divergences among the FFC forces over the political and economic reforms and the participation of the military component pushed some groups to quit the large coalition.

The FFC agreed to hold a conference to discuss reforms of its structures in March 2020, but they failed to hold it.

The meeting agreed to form a committee to collect the proposals of the political forces and merge it into a unified paper before submitting it to a meeting that will be held next Friday.

In a separate meeting, the NUP Secretary-General Alwathiq Albrier pledged to reach out to the holdout Communist Party armed groups of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front to develop a common vision to address the issues of democratic transition.
