                            Since its launch on January 8, the UN-facilitated consultations on a political process for Sudan have continued to engage a wide range of Sudanese stakeholders, including civil society (women's and women's groups, representatives of academia and lawyers, as well as as representatives of the FFC Central Committee, the Sudanese Communist Party, the Sudanese Congress Party, the Sudan Professionals Association (SPA) and some signatories of the Juba Peace Agreement, including Malik Agar and Al Hadi Idriss.



These consultations aim to understand the various perspectives and positions on the way forward to end the current political impasse and develop a path towards democracy and peace.

Consultation participants put forward a number of practical suggestions for moving the process forward as they discussed the scope and parameters of the process, including priority issues that need to be addressed immediately.  All participants welcomed the role of the UN in facilitating the consultations, noting that their timing is critical as an urgent solution to the current crisis is needed.

During the meetings held so far, Sudanese stakeholders urged UNITAMS to extend consultations beyond Khartoum and organize sessions with constituencies in all states.  The participants condemned the escalation of violence and emphasized that the violence must end before dialogue with the military is possible.

The SRSG will continue its consultations with political parties, resistance committees, women's groups and armed groups over the next week.  It continues to receive requests from other groups and entities that are interested in contributing to the consultations.  The SRSG welcomes and will endeavor to accommodate all requests to participate in the process.
