During a press conference on the afternoon of Feb. 27, the coordination of the Khartoum State Resistance Committees, the decentralized groups of revolutionaries at the forefront of the fight against the coup authorities in Sudan, announced the publication of their long-awaited political charter. The document sets out, for the first time, the main lines of these groups’ proposal for a way out of the crisis in which the country is mired, especially since the military takeover in October, and lays the foundations on which to build a new Sudan.
The charter puts forward a two-year transition during which a major overhaul of the state would take place. This period, as provided for in the text, would be supervised by the revolutionary forces and headed by a prime minister, of consensus among the signatories, whose functions will be defined in a transitional constitution. The announcement of the document, which aims to become a political reference that unites the revolutionary forces in Sudan, came after an extensive process of discussion and consultation among all the coordinators and their respective grassroots movements across Khartoum State.
