Some 28 Sudanese political parties have opposed the 2005 amendment to the transitional constitution which allows the incumbent President, Omar Al-Bashir, to run for a third term in 2020.

Sudanese political sources said the broad political front; which will include a number of political parties and forces are likely to nominate the head of the opposition’s Reform Now Party (RNP), Ghazi Salah Al-Din, for the presidency.

RNP political secretary, Khalid Nuri, told a local newspaper that they are forming a broad political front which includes a large number of political parties and forces against the decision to amend the constitution if the National Congress Party decided to nominate Al-Bashir for a third term in 2020.

“If the National Congress insisted on amending the constitution in this regard, we will not stand idly and we will oppose this,” he said.
