Launch of the final phase of the political process

The signatories to the Framework Agreement with the facilitation of the Trilateral Mechanism (African Union, Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and United Nations) will launch tomorrow the final phase of the political process aimed at reaching a final and just political agreement.

The opening ceremony will take place on Sunday, 8 January 2023 at the Friendship Hall in Khartoum in the presence of the civilian and military signatories to the Political Framework Agreement as well as representatives from civil society, academics, private sector, traditional and religious leaders, public opinion makers, youth and women rights groups.

Broad consultations on five issues identified in the Political Framework Agreement will follow starting on Monday 9 January 2023 with a four-day conference on the roadmap for the renewal of the dismantling of the 30 June regime process.

The upcoming working groups and conferences are expected to result in roadmaps on each of the issues to be considered in the final political agreement.
