Sudanese military after the coup wanted to transfer power to the civilian government

26

General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan at a press conference in Khartoum announced his readiness to transfer power to the civilian government. At the same time, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces noted that he was not going to take part in the activities of this cabinet. The general also stressed that the army had nothing to do with the deaths of protesters against the military regime.


As a result of the protests in the Sudanese capital and a number of other cities in the country, 14 people were killed, about 300 people were injured of varying degrees of severity. However, General al-Burhan argues that the military has nothing to do with this. At the same time, the head of the military government stressed his "commitment to the process of democratic transition."

At the same time, the very possibility of transferring power to a civilian government raises big questions. Despite the statements of the leader of the Sudanese military, the political situation in this African country is such that it is not very clear whether civilians will be able to retain power in their hands. In modern Sudan, there are a number of problems that hinder the normal development of political life, and these are not only the unresolved conflicts in Darfur, but also the dire economic situation.

It is clear that it is more profitable for the West to have a civilian government in Sudan controlled by international organizations and acting in their interests. However, in reality, the situation in the country may develop according to the most negative scenario. For example, a civilian government, if approved in power, can be overthrown by another military group. Here we must understand that Sudan has long been ruled and ruled by the military. There were practically no civilian governments in this country. Therefore, when Sudanese trade union leaders talk about the possibility of civilian government, one can recall that civilians lack real experience in government.

The protests in Sudan, we recall, were initiated by the so-called Sudanese Association of Professionals (SPA), which played an important role in the overthrow of the country's previous leader, Omar al-Bashir. Sudanese trade unions are supported by the West and are focused primarily on cooperation with Western countries.

If you think about the further development of events in Sudan, then you can predict two options: the first - the transfer of power into the hands of new military leaders who will remove General Burkhan, or the transfer of power to the civilian government, followed by massive protests and destabilization of the political situation. It is clear that the first option is more promising for the country, since in this case there will be no destabilization of the situation and the country will be able to develop normally. True, the military may not be able to hold power for a long time during active confrontation either.

            Rags ... power must be held and inherited, unless, of course, overthrown. Everything should be like in the capitalist countries of the 3rd world.

      Parties of pro-Western "democracy."
      And EVERYONE is striving for power. The so-called blocks of parties can crumble instantly when dividing portfolios in the government.
      Corruption, economic crisis, social problems.
      And the MAIN thing is the constant active intervention of the West on the one hand and the African Union, led by the KSA, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, on the other.
      In general, the transition period does not end in sight.

            I don't need your links. But when you fly to Sudan, if a stamp about visiting Israel is found in your passport, you will be returned back. (I experienced it myself.)

              Everything flows, everything changes? This is what Heraclitus said 2500 years ago, and has not yet been refuted. wink

              Israel and Sudan agreed to normalize relations yet a year ago.

                    So today and not a year ago, can you say that one-year agreements are working now? Me not. Yes, it's not about agreements and who is in power at the top.

                        So what does the general say that he will transfer power to the civilian government. I think the whirlwind will start there again. Rather, this is what refugees from Sudan (of Arab origin) say, who study in my office for a driver's license.

                        Puppets. The coup took place because the past got out of the hands. De facto power in Sudan has always belonged to the military.

    It was always not calm in Sudan, but as soon as the establishment of the MTS VIS of Russia point was announced, there was immediately excitement and a coup. These events are connected or just coincidence, although there are no such coincidences.

      The fact of the matter is that you need a government that will act in the interests of the West. And if not?

It is clear that the first option is more promising for the country, since in this case there will be no destabilization of the situation and the country will be able to develop normally. True, the military may not be able to hold power for a long time during active confrontation either.

    Completely erroneous opinion.
    The first option has no prospects.
    The country will not be able to develop normally.
    Feeding millions of people and developing the economy is not a task for the military. They don't know how to do it. They were taught something completely different.

    So, it was not by chance that General Abdel Fattah al-Burkhan wanted to transfer power to the civilian government.
    An Israeli delegation, which included representatives of the Mossad intelligence, visited Sudan just a few weeks ago. The Israelis met with the head of the Sovereign Council of Sudan, General Abdel Fattah al-Burkhan, as well as the head of government, Abullah Hamduk, who was detained by the military, and clearly explained to them that Israel had nothing to do with the internal Sudanese riots and showdowns. Israel is ready to cooperate in all possible directions with any government that will not support terrorism and lead the country along the path of economic development.
    The task of today's Sudan is to promptly bring the country out of the current political and economic crisis, and Israel has something to offer Sudan for mutual benefit in the latest agricultural technologies, in the development of medicine, and in solving the problems of supplying the country with water, electricity, etc. ...

    Unlike European countries, Israel has not made any public statements since the military coup in Sudan. but made it clear to the current Sudanese leadership that the military government will not accept either the West or the East. Sudan is interested in foreign investment and serious financial assistance. Israel may well serve as a reliable link between Sudan and the world's financial institutions.

    PS The delegation, among others, met with the commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Mohamed Hamdan Hemeti Dagalo.
    (Lieutenant General Dagalo has already visited Israel at the head of a delegation of the Sudanese military. In particular, he met with members of the national security headquarters and staff of the office of the head of government. He is also responsible for establishing relations with Russia).
    The lieutenant general said that the coup should in no case affect the prospects for concluding a peace agreement with Israel, since the head of the Sovereign Council of Sudan, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, understands well the need to normalize relations with the Jewish state.
