Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK (AOHR UK) said that the military coup in Sudan – Monday, October 25, 2021 – led by Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan is an inevitable result of the approach adopted by the ruling parties in managing the affairs of the country. It stressed that the focus of private gains of each party was the main goal, regardless of the daily living needs of citizens, dignity and achieving the goals of the revolution.
The Sovereign Council and the government failed to establish the rules of democracy and human rights principles, and each group was preoccupied with strengthening itself, seeking support from abroad and enacting laws aimed at taking revenge from figures of the previous regime and their supporters.
The only way out of the current crisis in Sudan is through a comprehensive national dialogue under the auspices of the United Nations that includes all civil and political forces without exclusion of anyone, provided that elections are held within the shortest period of time so that the people can choose their representatives and form a government that expresses the hopes and aspirations of the people.
Al-Burhan’s decisions and the repressive practices that followed, which led to the arrest, killing and wounding of a number of citizens, points out to the army’s attempts to establish an undemocratic regime in the country with the support of external forces that are not looking for the best interest of the Sudanese people.
The continued division and disagreement between the civil forces on the one hand and the conflict with the military component on the other hand deepens the crisis in Sudan and the citizens pay the price.
Therefore, all civil and military forces must engage in a dialogue to resolve the crisis and find solutions to manage the country.
