Sudan ruling pro-democracy group has hit out at the United Nations, blaming it for failing to protect its growth to democracy and being so nice with the generals who led the October 25 military coup.
The Sudanese Professionals’ Association which led dozens of protests since the military seizure in October- and which has led protests in 2019 which later resulted in the removal of Sudan ex-President Omar al-Bashir – refused again an initiative by the UN Mission in Sudan desired at bringing civilians and the military to the negotiating table.
While taking it to Twitter, the UNITAMS mission did not fulfil its mission as per the mandate given to it by the UN Security Council to help and monitor the democratic transition in the country.
“Your mission has failed to ensure the coup explicitly”, it added.
“All your mission’s moves indicated a recognition of the coup authorities.”
The African nation has been on a soft way to democracy since a famous revolt pushed the military to withdraw al-Bashir and his government in April 2019.
The trouble in Sudan worsened the situation in January after the resignation of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, who was the civilian face of the transitional administration during the last two years.
The Prime Minister, who was dismissed in the October coup only to be reinstated a month after the heavy international pressure, again stepped down last month on January 2 after his hard efforts to put, in order to resolve the crisis had failed.
UN mission is still trying its best to find a way out of the ongoing crisis.
According to the head of the UN Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS), With the coup perpetrators, your talks contradict the aspirations of Sudanese people flagrantly.
The initiative was taken by Mr Volker, who also took the responsibility of impartiality towards the military coup in its call for dialogue and communication among the parties of Sudanese.
The group also insisted that the military withdraw from politics and allow an entirely civilian government in the country.
The groups also restated a slogan which often used during the anti-coup protest, saying, “No negotiation, no partnership, no legitimacy.”
