Arab and UN leaders have asked Sudan’s Prime Minister to reconsider his resignation.


Sudan SudanOn Tuesday, Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok received phone calls from a number of Arab and foreign leaders pleading with him not to quit. On November 21, a month after reaching an agreement with Sudanese army Commander-in-Chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, Hamdok failed to create a technocratic administration and convince political factions to endorse a new political declaration.

According to various sources, the prime minister recently told al-Burhan of his plan to resign and instructed his staff to prepare for the transition. Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud met with al-Burhan and Hamdok on Tuesday, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

During his separate contacts, Al-Saud emphasized the Kingdom’s commitment to Sudan’s stability and asked for a new administration to be formed as quickly as feasible. According to the official news agency, he also called for a “Agreement between the military and civilian components for the benefit of Sudan and its brotherly people.”

According to people familiar with the calls, Al-Saud pleaded with Hamdok to rescind his decision and asked al-Burhan to reconsider his stance and make the necessary compromises to get the nation out of its current dilemma. The UN Secretary-General, the Arab League, and the US Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa all called Hamdok. The officials highlighted the necessity for the Sudanese prime minister to reconsider his choice and work toward a meaningful solution to the problem with him.

Last November, the African Union stated that a mission from the Peace and Security Council will meet with the parties to the constitutional declaration of August 17, 2019, to re-establish the civilian-military partnership. Sudan’s membership was suspended immediately after the coup.

The military, on the other hand, dismissed the proposal, claiming that domestic measures to resolve the problem were preferable. Hamdok postponed his resignation last week, citing progress in his efforts to establish a government as the reason. Hamdok’s desire to meet with the Forces for Freedom and Change was turned down. However, he was received by a group from the National Umma Party (NUP).

The NUP sent a memorandum to the FFC groups two days after filling it out, outlining different alternatives for ending the issue. The FFC accuses Hamdok of treason for signing the November 21st contract with al-Burhan, but he claims he backed it because other FFC leaders arranged it and pushed him to sign it. He was referring to NUP acting leader Fadlallah Burma.

The accord was rejected by the NUP leadership. Hamdok has recently been under fire from several pundits and bloggers, who have pushed him to resign, claiming that he has failed during the last two years and that he is responsible for the majority of the present predicament.
