The Sudanese government has announced State of Economic Emergency in an attempt to stop the high rocketing dollar exchange rate against the declining Sudanese pound.
It is good that the Minister of Finance, Dr. Hiba Mahmoud Ali stated in the joint press conference which included all the concerned authorities that the security measures are not the only solution and that there are other economic steps.
It is true that the security measures in which the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), Police, the General Intelligence Service (GIS) and the Ministry of Justice are involved will contribute considerably in reducing the speculations in hard currency, but these measures will not stop the deteriorating economy of the country.
It goes without saying that the transitional period after the success of December revolution in overthrowing was stumbling and the two components of the transitional period were not in harmony, especially within the civilian component represented by its political reference (Forces of Freedom and Change).
On the other hand, the military component is adapting the soft landing policy so its performance was dominated by reluctance in taking strong revolutionary procedures.
The civilian component is divided between the soft landing and the revolutionary dismantling of all the pillars of the ousted regime.
The difference among the FFC components resulted to complicating the political arena to the extent of making the Prime Minister unable to take any decisive actions according to the powers vested on him.
To come out of this crisis and to preserve to gains of the revolution there should be an urgent radical reform through reviewing the current Constitutional Document and to expedite the complete the peace process by signing all the peace agreements as soon as possible to pave the way for a new government to work out an emergency plan to recover the stumbling economy.
