The African Union decided to suspend Sudan’s participation in all its activities, in light of the military overthrow of the civilian government in this country earlier this week.
The African Union confirmed in a statement issued today, Wednesday, that its Peace and Security Council adopted this decision during a meeting held yesterday, noting that the decision to suspend Sudan’s participation in the activities of the Union will remain in effect unless the transitional authority is resumed by civilians already in this country.
In the statement, the Union expressed its deep concern about the announcement by the President of the Transitional Sovereign Council in Sudan, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, last Monday, about the military takeover of power in the country and the dissolution of the civilian government, warning that these developments threaten to undermine the progress made during the transitional period and push the country to A new round of violence.
The statement strongly condemned the military takeover of power in Sudan and “the change of government in an unconstitutional way,” stressing that this matter “is unacceptable and constitutes an affront to the common democratic values and standards of the African Union.”
The Peace and Security Council welcomed the Sudanese military’s allowing Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok to return to his home and called on them to immediately release the remaining ministers and civilian officials who are being held, warning the Sudanese army that it bears responsibility for the health, security and safety of these detainees.
The Council decided to establish a consultative mission in Sudan with the aim of conducting a dialogue with all concerned parties in order to find a consensual solution to the current political impasse, calling on those parties to continue to abide by the provisions of the Constitutional Declaration issued in August 2019 and the Juba Peace Agreement concluded in October 2020 and to respect the dates stipulated therein.
The statement also urged the Sudanese military to respect their constitutional mandate and to contribute in a constructive manner to creating the appropriate conditions for the success of the transitional phase.
The statement called on all concerned parties in Sudan to “give priority to the higher interests of the state and its people, maintain calm, refrain from incitement to violence, and immediately resume dialogue within the framework of the political declaration and the constitutional decree as the only viable way to salvage the current democratic transition process and reach a consensual and sustainable solution to Sudan’s problems.” .
The Council requested the Chairperson of the African Commission to immediately take the necessary measures in order to activate communication with the leaders of the transitional period and the Sovereignty Council, including sending an envoy to Sudan to discuss with the concerned parties the measures to be taken in order to speed up the resumption of the constitutional order in the country.
