New cracks in the transition in Sudan. While tensions between civilians and soldiers are already at their peak, disagreement is growing within the JRC, Forces for Freedom and Change, the alliance that has led the demonstrations that have led to the fall of Omar El Béchir. Two rebel factions, which joined the transition under the Juba agreement a year ago, have decided to form a dissident alliance and are demanding a reorganization of the transitional authorities.

In Khartoum, they are now called “FFC 2”. At the head of this new alliance are Mini Minawi, former rebel leader of the Sudan Liberation Army and Djibril Ibrahim of the Equality and Justice Movement. The first was appointed governor of Darfur in May last year, the second finance minister.
It was then seen as a step forward in the implementation of the Juba agreement, but now it is time to demand again. Both believe that the armed groups are still negatively affected in the distribution of portfolios within the transitional authorities. And therefore ask for changes. They repeated it again on Wednesday, October 13, to Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok, who tried in vain to bring the two branches of the JRC together around the same table.
Sudanese researcher Kholood Khair also sees in this departure a desire from the two former rebel leaders to “relocate in the political game, if the military takes over the transition”, which is going through an unprecedented crisis.
Tensions at most Three weeks after the failed coup attempt, tensions between civilians and soldiers are at their peak. As far as Monday, it was the President of the Sovereign Council, General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahmane al-Burhan, who demanded the dissolution of the government.
