The spokesman for the resistance committees in the city of Khartoum, Muhammad Anwar, stressed that the Sudanese street, with its various sects, raises natural demands, on top of which is the return of the military to the barracks, and that there be a civil and democratic state.

Anwar pointed out that there is a crisis of confidence between the Sudanese street and the military component, which makes sitting with the security committee represented in the Military Council impossible, accusing the Chairman of the Transitional Sovereign Council, Army Commander Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan and his deputy, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo (Hemedti), of having ambitions in power at the present time. and in the future.

A spokesman for the Resistance Committees in the city of Khartoum – in his speech to an episode (06/01/2022) of the “Scenarios” program – questioned how to bet on the military component in achieving the democratic transition while it is killing people in the streets – as he said – revealing that 3 people were killed. Today is Thursday when they came out asking for simple things.

In response to a question about the international dimension in the Sudanese crisis, Anwar said that the Sudanese people rely on themselves in the first place, but he does not object to any regional or international support for Sudan, provided that its support comes from the right path, that is, it considers the interests of the Sudanese people.

From the point of view of the former commander of the Sudanese Navy, Lieutenant-General Fath Al-Rahman Mohieldin, the military component does not want to continue in power and wants to hand it over, but to elected people, and said that other parties reject the elections for fear of bringing others – especially Islamists – to power.

While he explained that the armed forces were the ones who wrested power from the former regime and are supposed to take over power for a limited period without a partnership with the civilian component, Mohieddin saw that the Sudanese armed forces could not side with the movement in the street, because this movement does not represent the majority of the Sudanese people, and because the committees The popular resistance has no hierarchical structure, and it raises impossible slogans.

The spokesman defended the position of the military component, saying that it had called for dialogue since the October decisions, and that there were political forces that responded to it, but other forces that dominated the political scene in the past refused to do so.

The army chief had dismissed Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok and members of his government, and arrested some of them on October 25, but he returned him to his position without his government following international and local pressures under a political agreement signed on November 21. Hamdok was supposed to form a new government, but he was unable to do so.

The solution is in compatibility

As for the professor of strategic and security studies, Osama Ahmed Aidarous, he summarized his vision for resolving the Sudanese crisis in the need for all parties to reach a national consensus in order to create the atmosphere for a peaceful transfer of power, and said that the current problem is related to the nature of the authority itself.

According to Aidarous, the military council is required to leave power and recognize that its role – as stated in the constitution – is to protect and not to take power, noting that political parties also do not have the right to power, and they are trying to share the military component, some of which had previously shared power. for two years, but he got rid of them.

The guest of “Scenarios” stressed the need for the Military Council to relinquish its guardianship and to request dialogue with other parties under its umbrella, and to search for a national consensus to get out of the current impasse in the Sudanese scene.

It is noteworthy that the resignation of Prime Minister Hamdok confused and complicated the political scene in light of the escalation of the protest movement against the military component, and warnings of the consequences of any failure to agree between the concerned parties on the future of the country.
