Public Policy and Policymaking in Tumultuous Times in Sudan: A Quantitative Approach

Ahmed Mustafa Elhussein Mansour*, Adil Altayeb Yousif

On December 19, 2019 a peaceful social uprising ousted the thirty-years-old Omer AL Bashir's Islamist regime, and a new transitional political system has emerged. The emergence of this system is the outcome of very tough negotiations between the Military Council and the Forces of Freedom and Change (FOFAC). The latter includes opposition parties, civic societies, and militant groups. The latter include rebels from Dar Fur and the Southern Blue Nile Provinces, which have engaged in a civil war with the defunct Bashir's regime. The chief player among the FOFAC components is the Sudanese Professional Association (SPA), which consists of professionals such as physicians, university professors, labor organizations, and others. The main slogans of the revolution were "freedom, peace, justice, and medanai (civil government). The SPA played a pivotal role in the success of the revolution. It organized the popular uprisings and demonstrations against the previous government by scheduling the times and locations of widespread protests. The Bashir's regime utilized maximum force, including the police, the socalled "Shadow Battalions," and the ferocious Internal Security Apparatus, to suppress the revolution. After the overthrow of Bashir’s regime, the new transitional political system consists of three bodies: The Sovereignty Council, the Cabinet, and an appointed legislative body; the establishment of the latter is pending the reaching of a comprehensive peace plan with the militant groups.
