For this reason… Al-Moussawi rules out Al-Sudani’s move towards ministerial changes


On Wednesday, the Summit Center for Strategic Studies stated that Sudan should focus on making radical changes in most ministries to address existing weak links rather than making ministerial changes during the current period.

During an interview with The Agency, Haider Al-Moussawi, the director of the center, stated that the Prime Minister had a genuine opportunity to bring about change. However, he failed to take advantage of it while the government evaluation was being sent to Parliament. He further noted that the evaluations were weak for over five ministries in the current government.

He stated, “We are not considering any ministerial changes during this period,” and emphasized that this decision would be a major setback for the Sudanese government as they are currently unable to make such changes.

Al-Moussawi concluded his speech, stating that the government needs to make radical changes in the ministries, including undersecretaries and general directors. He added that if the government fails to do so, it will weaken the Parliament’s oversight performance.

The Sudanese government has adopted a principle of comprehensive evaluation of the performance of ministers, their agents, and general directors. This is part of their efforts to bring about changes that are consistent with their program. The government faces a heavy legacy left behind by successive administrations, especially the previous Al-Kadhimi government. The previous governments had worked within the agency system instead of promoting originality. Additionally, some agents and directors have been in the same position for more than ten years, which the government is trying to address through its evaluation process.

In an interview with the Agency, Ali Al-Zubaidi, a member of the Al-Fatah Alliance, criticized the practice of working through proxies in senior positions instead of appointing genuinely qualified individuals. He emphasized that this practice has led to an increase in corrupt dealings. Al-Zubaidi further pointed out that the issue of some ministries and directorates being run by families arises from officials who have remained in their positions for over a decade.
