Signing of the «Revolutionary Charter for the Establishment of People’s Authority

Al-Yurae – Khartoum – ( local and international media) – The resistance committees that lead the current movement in Sudan on Wednesday signed a joint charter that provided a vision of how to govern the country during the transitional period; according to three structures that include the Legislative Council, the Council of Ministers, the judiciary and the parliament and with separate powers.
The political charter, according to the Saudi newspaper Asharq al-Awsat, signed by the Sudanese Resistance Committees, stipulated the cancellation of the constitutional document and the Juba peace agreement contained therein, and stressed the “Three No’s” represented in the refusal to negotiate, recognize or partner with the current military leadership of the Sudanese army, and work to bring down the so-called “October coup”, after which thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of the capital Khartoum and a number of other cities of the country.
The Resistance Committees said in a press statement that the Khartoum Committees and a number of different states and cities of the country formed a joint technical committee tasked with unifying the charters submitted by the resistance committees, and reached what was called the «Revolutionary Charter for the Establishment of People’s Authority», to be a political and organizational vision of the peaceful resistance movement..
According to the statement, the charter is submitted to all the forces of the revolution for signature, except for the groups that supported the coup and supporters of the Islamist regime and its party, with a call for the rest of the resistance committees that were not involved in the preparation of the draft to accelerate discussions to unify the vision of all resistance committees on a unified document.
The charter provided for the dissolution of the Military Sovereign Council, the formation of a three-person civilian council, the abolition of the constitutional document, the return to the 1956 interim constitution, the formation of a legislative council of revolutionaries, resistance committees, jurists, national politicians and families of martyrs, with a revolutionary government of “technocrats”, the structuring of the armed forces and the formation of a single army. The constitutional document is the constitution that governed the transitional period and the partnership between civilians in the Alliance for Freedom and Change and the military component.
The unified charter of the resistance committees also provided for the formation of a number of commissions, including a commission for justice, the dismantling of the empowerment of the Brotherhood regime, the establishment of special courts; and the subjection of all state companies, security companies, the army and the police to the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Finance.
The charter calls for equality of rights and duties among citizens, strengthening the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary and the rule of institutions, limiting the role of the army to defending the homeland and protecting the constitution, upholding the civil state, promoting public freedoms and separation of powers, just retribution through a revolutionary trial of revolutionary killers and corruption, and the formation of an international commission of inquiry into the massacre of the dispersal of the sit-in and the crimes after the October 2012 coup.
This comes as thousands in the capital Khartoum and a number of other cities of the country organized new marches to demand civilian rule and justice.
A number of regions of the country witnessed protest processions and demonstrations called by the resistance committees, according to the schedule of demonstrations and protests that they have been announcing monthly, and provided for central and decentralized processions and demonstrations throughout the month of October, including the Thursday procession, which was called the procession (6 October).
In Khartoum, the convoy headed to Africa Street, known as Airport Street, in central Khartoum, while protesters from the city of Omdurman headed to the entrance to the Shambat Bridge at the “Roundabout of the Azhari leader”, and other areas where resistance committees used to demonstrate during the days of decentralized processions, or when the authorities closed the bridges linking the cities of the capital Khartoum.
As usual, whenever protest processions were announced, the authorities closed the Mek Nimr bridge linking Khartoum to Khartoum Bahri, passing near the presidential palace and vital areas in the heart of Khartoum, using metal containers to prevent the passage of cars and pedestrians through it, and thousands marched in protest processions in the cities of El Obeid in Kordofan, Zalingei in Darfur, Wood Madani on the island, and other cities across the country.
Coinciding with these developments, security forces have intensified their deployment on main roads and closed some bridges linking the three areas of the capital to prevent protesters from reaching the presidential palace and army headquarters in central Khartoum.
The country is living in complex security situations in light of the continuation of protests and the negative impact on the country’s economy on global conditions, and the continued suspension of international aid, which the international financial institutions, the United States and the European Union countries say its resumption is linked to the return of the transitional track..
