(Khartoum) - The spokesman for the Coalition of National Opposition Parties, Faroq Abu-Eisa MP, says that Sudanese are poorer now than they were in the past because of what he describes as the failed economic policies of the National Congress Party.
Addressing a press conference in Khartoum on Sunday, Mr. Eisa said that people have been living in poverty for the last twenty years.
[Faroq Abu Eisa]: “Sudanese people are living in misery. That has never happened before. More than 90% of the population is on the edge of poverty and hunger because of bad economic and political policies, since the current regime came to power in 1989. Our people are at a turning point, they are afraid of what is going to happen in the country due to the same bad policies, the policies of humiliation and insult.”
He warned that what he saw as a lack of commitment towards the peace agreements is putting the whole country in peril.
