Sudan's Bashir Hands Party Leadership To New Deputy

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has handed leadership of the country's ruling party to his newly appointed deputy weeks into protests against Bashir's rule.

Demonstrations and deadly clashes have rocked Bashir's iron-fisted rule since December, and last week he imposed a year-long state of emergency to quell the protests.

"President Omar al-Bashir has transferred his authority as chief of the party to Ahmed Harun," the ruling National Congress Party said in a statement.

"Harun will serve as the acting chief of NCP until the party's next general convention, where a new president of the party will be elected."

Bashir appointed Harun, wanted by the Hague-based International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes in the conflict in Darfur, as his deputy party chief last week as part of top level changes in his administration in the face of ongoing protests.

Bashir himself is wanted by the ICC for alleged genocide and war crimes in Darfur, charges he denies.

The NCP has an overwhelming majority in parliament, and according to its charter, the chief of the party becomes its candidate in presidential elections.

The next presidential election in Sudan is scheduled in 2020.

  1. Even Sudan know what is good and act on it. Here in Nigeria, protest and the next news headlines will be scores killed by military troops. Nigeria is still far from development.

    1. Stop your ignorance. Do you know how many people have been killed by the government since the protests started? Do you know how many imprisoned? Do you know that he dissolved his cabinet and put in military after which he declared a full year state of emergency in the country? But your ignorance of always wanting to bad mouth Nigeria makes you dumber than the knowledge you think you have. When it comes to politics and international issues, you should keep quiet because you know nothing. Omar Bashir has been the president of Sudan before you were born. I hope you know that. Do you know the percentage of the country’s inflation since the last three years? And you think the change of party leader will make Omar Bashir leave his position? Do you know what the judgement of his case was st the ICC? You come here with plain ignorance to type nonsense. Please, focus on the little that you know which is, writing gbagauns and let others speak about other stuffs with their knowledge. I greet you this morning, Stella.

    2. Election loss still de pain you. Please accept the fact that we will never support or enable corruption in governance again. The earlier you accept that fact the better for you and your ilk.

    3. Where is the correlation between my comment and election? Don't make your education look as a waste.

  2. This is what never happens in Nigeria.
    Call for protest, even the caller vanishes days to the protest.

    1. God bless you for affirming my initial remark on this.

    2. Affirming your initial remark of ignorance about a government, country and president you know nothing about? Why didn’t you counter the points above? Instead you prefer to AFFIRM your ignorance. How many protests have you participated in except the lies you post everyday.
