PRESS RELEASE
ON THE SIGNING OF THE NEW CONSTITUTION IN THE SUDAN AND THE OPERATIONALIZATION OF THE COMPREHENSIVE PEACE AGREEMENT



Guided by its unflinching commitment to the development and well being of its citizens, and inspired by its resolve to realize peace and stability in the country, the Government of the National Salvation Revolution exerted genuine and commendable efforts to achieve those lofty objectives since its advent into power in 1989. A comprehensive Peace Agreement was signed with the Sudan People's Liberation Movement in Nairobi, Kenya on 9th January, 205, that ended more than two decades of war in the Southern part of the country. Within the constitution has been enacted and signed by the President H.E. Omaar Hassan Ahmed Al-Bashir who together with his new first Vice-President Dr. John Garang and Vice-President Mr. Ali Othman Mohamed Taha took the Oath of Office on 09th July, 2005 in the presence and participation of the record number of Heads of state and Government and international dignitaries.

With the coming of this Constitution into force, the country has closed one chapter and opened up a new one, ushering in a new era full of expectations as well as determination to realize lasting peace and prosperity for the Sudanese people. The 09th of July 2005 constitutes a landmark event in the history of the Sudan and sets a model in conflict resolution and management of unity in diversity. It is time now for the energies of the country to be released and its potential and enormous resources utilized to achieve the much needed socio-economic development and prosperity of the nation.

On this memorable and momentous occasion we salute and congratulate the Government and people of the Sudan on the realization of this historic event. The international community is also urged in this connection to translate its pledges and commitments, as announced in Oslo to reinforce the Peace Process.
