Sudan ruling coalition says more time needed for appointment of civilian governors


January 21, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - The official spokesman of the Forces for Freedom and Change said they are Wajdi Saleh are working tirelessly to finalize the nomination of civilian governors and to complete the structures of the transitional authority

Wajdi Saleh

In statements to Al-Jarida newspaper, Saleh explained that they carefully consider the files of the candidates in order to choose the best for the post of governors.

"It is necessary to carefully select them because they will be appointed. So, we try as much as we can that those governors express the will of the citizens of the states," he stressed.

"Accordingly, this procedure takes time," he added without elaborating on when they will finalize it.

On 7 January, an FFC leadership member Gafar Hassan Osman told Sudan Tribune they handed over a list of 14 nominated state governors to the prime minister, and the four others are still under consideration.

The ruling coalition will nominate the 18 governors who will be appointed by the prime minister without giving him the possibility to change them as it was the case for the cabinet members.

for Darfur and the Two Areas, the FFC says they will appoint new governors to be picked in accord with the armed groups once a peace agreement is signed.

Our cloned so-called arab of North Sudan Here are the truths/facts: Saudi Arabia and her supporters backers from the US>>>

      • 21 January 10:16, by Langbaar

        the UK, France, their evil juus (so-called israelis) attack dogs and others because ’Islam is considered to be what would always draw low lives to Mecca’ and Saudi Arabia and her backers who have invested heavily prior Saudi Arabia no oil would continue to get earn some other investments by *Muslims pilgrim to Mecca*, it is a fact and not a fiction>>>

        • 21 January 10:23, by Langbaar

          Benjamin Netanyahu of evil juus (so-called israel) and low lives want to make *Jerusalem their way of making a living* since Christians and Muslims alike would always want to visit Jerusalem and the they will always go and pay taxes there. Pope Francis and Catholicism don’t want to be left behind in all these ’scrambling for people’ And Rome, the home of Catholic church cannot be left behind>>>>

          • 21 January 10:34, by Langbaar

            and Mr. Salva Kiir and his Riek Machar were invited by Pope Francis, a good gesture though, but not really. Another South Sudanese group was again invited by ’Sant Egidio’ and went and brokered a so-called peace between South Sudanese people fools?. Since South Sudanese are the best Christians. The devil infested island of England also doesn’t want to be left out of people. And Mr. Boris Johnson>>

            • 21 January 10:44, by Langbaar

              some African leaders low lives to London. I am not writing conspiracy theories, but facts. Africans are considered to be flocking to London since many African countries were once colonized by the UK, my arse. Berlin conference 2.0 was what, was done by Mrs. Angela Merkel. The UK former colonies were also parallel invited to London. South Sudanese to Rome>>>>

              • 21 January 10:56, by Langbaar

                Some losers may ask me about, where is the US in all these? A South Sudanese primary school pupil, will answer rhetorical question with no difficulty at all. And where are the UN and the NGOs in all these? And also where do the ’IGAD and the African union (AU)’ come into South Sudanese people internal affairs? South Sudan is called the *WORLD NEWEST NATION*>>>

                • 21 January 11:05, by Langbaar

                  The so-called most poorest & the most vulnerable country on earth----and that without *the US, the UN, NGOs, well wishers around the world, South Sudan and South Sudanese wouldn’t exist?!!!. Fellows, let round up and things which connected to evil white Americans, English people, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, Abeshas (so-called ethiopian) prostitutes, evil juus (so-called israelis)>

                  • 21 January 11:13, by Langbaar

                      The ruling coalition is being ruled by the streets. Presidents, politicians, & representatives betray, but the streets always keep it real. By streets, I’m referring to the resistance committees.

                      • 22 January 12:42, by Fathi

                        What do you mean you can’t live side by side with North Sudanese? You’ve done so for thousands of years. It’s been a decade, since South Sudan chose to secede. Your problems can’t be placed on the North anymore.

                        • 22 January 12:47, by Fathi

                          We aren’t the ones exploiting you, that’s the US, Israel, and their dirty NGOs. In addition, South Sudan is only in front of Somalia in terms in corruption. It’s time for you to clean house and remove all your politicians, pseudowisemen elders, and self-appointed kings.

                          • 22 January 12:48, by Fathi

                            Get your house in order before you look through our window.

                            • 22 January 12:49, by Fathi

                              You’re so obsessed Mecca. Listen, we only have to go there once in our lifetime.

                              • 22 January 12:52, by Fathi

                                Netanyahu doesn’t want muslims in Jerusalem. In fact, he plans on knocking down Masjid al Aqsa to build the third temple. He will likely destroy it and blame it on an Iran or Hamas missile.

                                • 22 January 12:55, by Fathi

                                  Get out of here with your pope that contradicts the bible. I heard your pope doesn’t believe in hell and that the church is debating on if they should allow homosexual marriage. These kind of deviations from Christianity is why majority North Sudanese left Christianity when we were a Christian Kingdom.

                                  • 22 January 13:00, by Fathi

                                    In Islam, our prophet told us that Moses and Jesus are both black. Gamal Abdel Nasser was the 2nd president of Egypt in 1956. President Nasser went on television and radio in the 50’s and stated to the Askenazi jews "You have left Black and returned White you are impostors and shall never see peace"

                                    • 22 January 13:14, by Fathi

                                      Even your Christian papacy is racist. How come we’ve never had a black pope? It’s because Christianity was hijacked by the racist Romans. They probably became racist after our queen pierced their pupils with our arrows and dog-walked them out of our land.

                                      • 22 January 13:16, by Fathi

                                        Our Queen even beheaded their whiteman statue to disrespect them because she could. That made them mad and led to them destroying our African noses on their way out of our Egypt.

                                        • 22 January 13:19, by Fathi

                                          When my dad was in medical school he went to Juba to treat some South Sudanese. He saw some white people come in their missionaries. He said they would give food for people who would become christian and listen to them speak about christianity which led to some converting.

                                          • 22 January 13:22, by Fathi

                                            If South Sudan didn’t have resources, the US and their proxies wouldn’t have helped you secede.
