Sudan's National Umma Party Calls for Dialogue Amid Dual Administrative Crisis

The deputy secretary-general of Sudan's National Umma Party has called for dialogue to resolve the country's ongoing dual administrative crisis, as the conflict between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) enters its second year with no progress made on reaching a peaceful negotiated solution.

Experts and observers in Sudan have raised alarm that the country may be headed towards a prolonged war that could lead to the division of Sudan and the spillover of the conflict into the regional areas. The success of negotiations will depend heavily on time, emphasizing the pressing need to accelerate efforts to reach a negotiated solution and intensify regional and international contacts in support of peace to prevent further escalation of the war.

The war has already caused massive economic and human losses, with both sides demonstrating a lack of political will to turn to a negotiated solution. The United States and networks of looting and gold smuggling have also played a role in the ongoing conflict.

Why this matters: The prolonged conflict in Sudan threatens to destabilize the entire region and cause immense human suffering. A peaceful resolution through dialogue is critical to prevent further loss of life and economic devastation in the country.

Observers stress the importance of unifying the forces of peace and civilian democratic rule in Sudan to counter the escalating violence. The call for dialogue by the National Umma Party's deputy secretary-general highlights the pressing need for all parties to come together and work towards a negotiated solution to end the crisis and restore stability in Sudan.
