MPs: Darfur Conference within Implementation of Doha Document
Khartoum - MPs were unanimous in the belief that the People of Darfur Conference is within the frame of implementing Doha Document for Peace in Darur (DDPD) which the people of Darfur endorse. Several of the issues of Darfur were discussed at the conference, the most important of which are the IDPs, refugees, and development.
Member of the States Assembly Mohamedeen Shareef Sabi confirmed that the DDPD enjoys the endorsement of the international community and the international organizations, a fact that facilitates implementing it on the ground. He affirmed that the conference –attended by more than a thousand of Darfuri people- will discuss a range of the Darfuri issues including IDP, refugees, and security issues.
Sabi explained that the government is required to implement its share of the agreement especially in what relates to security issues, confirming that displacement and refuge will not cease to be a problem unless security is maintained. He said the conference is a golden opportunity for arms bearers to review their stance because all the people of Darfur reject war and want peace to realize development in the region.
In a statement to Sudan Vision Sabi revealed that on behalf of Darfur MPs he is going to present a paper titled: "Role of Legislative bodies in oversight and legislation of development projects within the framework of implementing Darfur Peace Document". The paper also discusses the development in Sudan Development wise and legislation wise.
On his part Salah Alghali, member of the States Assembly, said that this state of stability of Darfur has not been witnessed since 2003, calling on those who did not sign the peace agreement to end war and contribute to development in Darfur. He explained that the country is being targeted by many, a thing that requires all people to come together to enable the people of Darfur to benefit from the products of their region and realize comprehensive development in Darfur.
