Sudan’s NCP says it is too early to talk about post-dialogue government

Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) Monday said it is too early to talk about the type of the government that will be formed to implement the outcome of the National Dialogue Conference (NDC).

The NCP was reacting to the conclusions announced by the head of Governance Issues Committee Barakat Musa Hawati on Thursday 28 January 2016 when he told reporters that a Government of National Reconciliation led by President Omer al-Bashir will be formed to implement the resolutions of the national process.
