Escalating Controversy

There's a lot of drama happening in Sudan's political world right now. The Chairman of the Sovereignty Council, Army Commander Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, recently said that there won't be any political process until after the war is over and the rebellion of the Rapid Support Commander, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo “Hemedti,” is squashed. This has made opposition forces upset because they think it's a sneaky way to keep the military in power and delay the political scene.

Efforts to Stop the War

Since fighting broke out in Khartoum in April, people have been trying to stop the war. An American-Saudi agreement was made to focus on humanitarian issues and military arrangements to end the war, without getting into politics. The African Union also came up with a plan to resolve the crisis, but Sudan didn't really pay attention to it because they're not part of the African Organization right now.

How to Solve the Crisis

Experts think the best way to end the crisis in Sudan is for both sides to agree to stop fighting for at least 6 months. This will give everyone a chance to calm down, go back home, and get things back to normal. Then they can talk about a political solution and make sure there's a lasting peace.

Goals of the Process

One leader thinks that the political process should happen at the same time as a permanent ceasefire. This way, the military and civilians can work together to build a new government that everyone agrees on.

Power Struggle

Some people are playing a power game, trying to figure out who will come out on top after the war. The different groups have their own ideas about what should happen next, and they're all trying to make sure they get what they want.

Building a Foundation

One group has a plan to end the war through negotiations and then start a political process to make sure it doesn't happen again. They want to address the root causes of the conflict and build a new government that works for everyone.

Overall, the political situation in Sudan is complicated, with different groups fighting for power and trying to figure out the best way forward. It's going to take a lot of work and cooperation to bring peace and stability back to the country.
