Resistance Committees Reject ‘Draft Transition’ Constitution’of the Bar Association

Al-Yurae-A member of the Joint Technical Committee for the Unification of Charters and a member of the Liaison and External Relations Office of ‘the Revolutionary Charter of People’s Power’, Tajideen Ishaq Abdullah told Al-Sudani newspaper that the People’s Power Charter signed by the Resistance Committees yesterday differs from the old political approach based on the hijacking of political decisions by political elites.
Ishaq said that the committees view the recent constitutional declaration of the Steering Committee of the Bar Association as a draft made inside closed rooms, unlike the Charter of the Resistance Committees, which was put forward to the people after discussions and public readings in seminars and travels that lasted for 3 months that resulted in the unification of 3 charters into one charter that expresses the rules.
He pointed out that the Lawyers’ Steering Committee is supposed to be a technical committee with specific tasks whose period of three months has already ended, and it is not one of its tasks to draw up a transitional constitution, and added: “There is no constitution in the world in the science of constitutions made before the political declaration, describing the constitution as improper, while the charter of resistance is political goes in the direction of making a transitional constitution.
Ishaq saw that the flaws of the lawyers’ constitution are the same as the flaws of the two versions of the constitutional document, pointing out that its most fundamental mistakes are his failure to talk about the dissolution of militias through its adherence to the integration of Rapid Support Forces with the regular forces, and the development of Juba peace, and Ishaq criticized the reference of the constitution of lawyers to the overthrow of the coup through dialogue with the security committee by inventing the Defense and Security Council instead of the Sovereignty Council, and the formation of a new government, which he considered a sign of satisfaction with a kind of partnership with the military.
On the other hand, the committee member explained that the charter of the committees in contrast to the lawyers’ constitution expresses clear rejection of negotiations with the military, the dissolution of the Rapid Support Forces and the cancellation of the Juba peace agreement, and continued to criticize the orientation of the constitutional declaration to manage lawyers abroad before the interior by first presenting it to embassies and the international community before the people.
