FFC said it is avoiding interference among the army and want it to stay away from political affairs

The Central Council of the “Forces of Freedom and Change” said that the coalition parties are distancing themselves from working among the army and asking it in return to stay away from politics

In statement said it listened to the remarks of the military side on the political process, which they received through the tripartite mechanism of the United Nations, the African Union and IGAD. It also stressed Thiré commitment to full civilian authority and the reform of the military institution, pointing out that building the civil front against the October 25 coup last year, and coordination between the forces of the revolution, is moving forward with monumental steps.

Coup leader Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan warned Islamists, communists and Baathists against interfering in the military, which analysts saw as one of his desperate attempts to stay in power..

The Executive Office of the Forces of Freedom and Change said that “what carried Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan’s statement about the activity of the Arab Socialist Baath Party in the army is incorrect, as all coalition forces distance themselves from work among the armed forces, and seek to distance the military institution from political work completely, and that the forces of freedom and change are united and do not accept any targeting of their components.”

The Executive Office decided to escalate campaigns demanding the release of detainees, including the leader of the «Freedom and Change» and the Arab Socialist Baath Party, Wajdi Saleh, and a member of the Committee for the Removal of Empowerment Abdullah Suleiman, stressing the escalation of campaigns demanding the release of political detainees. He stressed that “their freedom is a right that should not be taken away by adapting laws to serve a political agenda,” pointing to “the fight against political arrests by all legitimate means.”

Burhan had accused Baathists and communists, as well as Islamists, of interfering in the affairs of the army and inciting soldiers and officers.

He also stressed during his address to the soldiers at the Markhiyat camp for operations, Sunday, their rejection of the dismantling of the army, and hostility to anyone who interferes in its affairs, stressing their commitment to the formation of a civilian government under the tutelage of the army “if it deviates from its program, the military will be present with their weapons to correct the course, as happened on October 25 of last year”, he said.
