The leader of the National Umma Party, Sadiq al-Mahdi, has identified four points he said might fail the revolutionary movement, namely, the lack of vision of the desired alternative, its backwardness from class unity and peacefulness, as well as external interventions motivated by counter-revolution.
Al-Mahdi stressed that the time is ripe for bringing about change and the adoption of democratic rule due to the fragility of the country’s ruling system. He warned against attempts by the regime to fail the demonstrations through an internal coup.
“Now is the historic opportunity for the forces of change to make a broader shift from the Arab Spring model and to move towards a new phase, the most important of which is democratic governance that achieves participation, accountability, transparency and rule of law,” and he predicted ” that the weakness of the regime would contribute to a conflict between the forces within it”.
