Al Bashir Denies Differences over Coming Ministerial Reshuffle

Al-Sammani Awadallah

Khartoum – President of the Republic, Field Marshal Omer Hassan Al Bashir, has denied any differences within the government over the prospective ministerial reshuffle, expected to be announced within the two coming days.

The government is making efforts to ensure the participation of largest possible number of youth in the government, the President said.

The First Vice President, Ali Osman Mohamed Taha, will give up the post of the First Vice President in the coming new government the same as he did when he vacated the post for the late Dr. John Garang when the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was concluded in 2005, President Al Bashir said. Ali Osman is a sincere man, he is leading the change himself, he added.

Those who have claimed existence of differences which forced the First Vice President to resign are liars, Al Bashir said, indicating that Taha has said the example when he voluntarily and of his own free will decided to quit the post to give the opportunity for coming generations to lead.

The march will not stop and a group of youths will be put in position of authority to lead the nation, the President said.

Addressing a huge gathering at Garri village, north of Khartoum Bahri, held to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the establishment of an Islamic state in Sudan, the President called on the Sudanese people to follow the path of Abdallah Jamma and Amara Donkus who had established an Islamic state in Sudan.
