The two factions of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) said they agreed to merge into a unified organizational structure pointing the new umbrella would be formed within a month.
The SRF, which is a coalition established between armed groups in Sudan in 2011, split into two factions in October 2015. Since then, the two factions have operated independently but remained part of the opposition Sudan Call alliance with other political parties.
“After extensive discussions and comprehensive review of the past experiences, it was agreed to unite and merge the two fronts into a unified organizational structure,” said the leaders of the two factions, Malik Agar and Minni Minnawi in a joint statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Sunday.
According to the statement, a joint meeting of the leadership council would be held within a month to amend the constitution of the SRF, approve a new leadership structure, identify the tasks and elect the officials.
