Dec 28, 2020(Nyamilepedia) — The Sudanese Council of Partners for the Transitional Period calls on political parties to present the names of their nominees for the ministerial positions and state governors so that the transitional government could be formed.
The council’s spokesperson Mariam al-Mahdi said after a meeting that was held on Sunday evening that the council was briefed by the Quartet about the ongoing discussions in respect to the nominations.
“The council was briefed by the Quartet, which is tasked with the follow up of the new cabinet’s formation, about the ongoing discussions on this respect,” Mariam al-Mahdi said in a statement.
According to the statement, the Council of Partners discussed the efforts of the sub-committees working to nominate qualified and skilled national figures while stressing on the need to achieve it quickly.
Some reliable sources from the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) have said that the party is expected to finalize the discussions on the distribution of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF)’s portfolios on Monday before handing over the list of nominees to the Prime Minister to choose his cabinet ministers.
Other sources say that the discussions with the SRF groups on the new cabinets has delayed the formation of the new cabinet, pointing they requested several ministries but also took time to agree on the distribution of the positions among them.
SRF sources say they demand seven ministries related to the implementation of the peace agreement citing the Ministries of Federal Government, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Health, Mining, Infrastructure and Social Affairs.
Sudanese opposition groups last month announced that they have given the Prime minister, Abdalla Hamdock, their blessing to lead the country for the remainder of the transitional period.
The council’s spokesperson Mariam al-Mahdi further said that the Council reviewed the situation in the eastern Sudan border and expressed its support for the army.
The Council of Partners further affirmed Sudan’s respect for Ethiopian nationals residing in the country, in addition to the new refugees.
