July 23, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - Hassan Al-Turabi, leader of the Popular Congress Party (PCP) held on Tuesday a rare meeting with former presidential Ghazi Salah Eddin, years after a dissidence among Sudanese Islamists.

Ghazi played an important role in 1999 when ten leading members of the National Congress Party (NCP) moved against Turabi’s domination of the decision making process in the country and limited the attribution of the former NCP secretary general.

Since, the party split and Turabi created his PCP which is a fierce opposition party refusing any compromise with the regime.

Turabi’s meeting with Ghazi who is now a marginalized figure in the party after his removal from the presidency and the chairmanship of NCP parliamentary block took place at an obituary to commemorate Yassin Omer Imam, a prominent Sudanese Islamist.

No details of the closed door meeting have so far been released, but the two men discussed for more than a hour without the presence of any third party.

Ghazi is close to a group of Islamist officers that had been last November accused with the former chief of the intelligence and security apparatus of preparing a military coup against the regime but were released by the president earlier this year.

Turabi’s PCP announced on Monday it has a secret plan to bring down the regime of president Omer Al-Bashir.

The Islamist opposition party remains the only opposition force that is openly calling to establish an Islamic regime in Sudan.
