In the Arabic language, one word may have more than one meaning, and I use the word ma’touba in this article figuratively in the sense of idle or disabled and unable to move, and it means (the damaged government) that is unable to take and enforce rational and just decisions that lead to reaching the goals of the state’s administration Effectively, efficiently and quickly, and because the state administration is based on taking and implementing decisions, any government is considered (damaged) if it does not have the ability or courage and the courage to take rational and just decisions and implement them with reasonable speed (and I repeat the ability, courage, boldness and reasonable speed and without dragging of feet, as he says Our people in western Sudan). Perhaps the honorable reader will know that the main purposes of running any state with rationality and justice are, as I wrote in more than one article:
First, preserving the security and safety of people’s lives, honor, money and the environment in which they live.
Secondly, the establishment of justice, giving everyone his right, and protecting the weak from the encroachment of powers (including the government itself) through laws and an independent, just, effective and reasonable judiciary.
Third, facilitating and organizing livelihood management to provide a decent life for all people by stabilizing the prices of goods and services, providing opportunities for productive work, providing education and health care, and caring for vulnerable groups such as the disabled and those without care, including orphans, widows, the sick and the elderly.
The ruling authority in the state, especially the legislative bodies, addresses the above-mentioned purposes or public interests through:
First, issuing laws that regulate people’s political, economic, social and cultural behavior, etc., which apply to all, rich and poor, ruler and ruled. When a conflict arises between people, they resort to an independent judiciary to settle disputes in accordance with the provisions of those laws. This is known as the rule of law.
Secondly, the ruling authority addresses the general purposes mentioned above by taking money from the pockets of citizens and spending it on security-preserving agencies such as the army, police, intelligence, judicial agencies, and infrastructure necessary for the production and exchange of goods and services, such as water storage vessels, roads, electricity, etc., and spending money on Education, treatment and care services for the weak (and not pouring it into the pockets of the empowered, the rank and file, as autocratic regimes do). Sudan has suffered during the years of democratic rule, including the current transitional government (the December 2018 revolution regime) from the failure of governments based on the coalition or party quotas. The contentiousness and conflict and the tendency to disagreement and disagreement is the main feature of these systems. In my article entitled (In Search of a Path to Political Stability in Sudan), I said that the system of government based on Western-style representation, coalition parties, and partisan quotas in the distribution of chairs, has failed to achieve political stability and failed to address the concerns and aspirations of Sudanese citizens due to various factors. There are many challenges, foremost of which are the challenges of scarcity (or the inability of the available human and financial resources to meet the aspirations of the citizens) and the lack of a political party that enjoys the support of the majority of the Sudanese people, and because of the severe polarization we live in in all aspects of our lives; Independence and unionists, supporters and Khatmiyyah, and the Islamic extreme right is contrasted by an extreme socialist left, strangeness and majesty, crescent and Merikheb, etc. All parties’ lack of cadres with high administrative capabilities and the tyranny of tribal loyalty over national loyalty. Perhaps the readers will remember what the late, whom we hope God will grant him forgiveness and mercy, wrote, Professor Al-Tayyib Zain Al-Abidin, Professor of Political Science at the University of Khartoum on (consensual democracy). This is a reality that no arrogant person can deny its complexities, and Sudan cannot jump over it, as the past and near present experiences have proven. This complex reality requires everyone to search for a path that leads to stability and to the effectiveness and efficiency of the government instead of braying and talking hollow about (civilization). The transitional period, reading it calmly and deeply, will find that most of these tasks fall on the shoulders of the civil component in the government, but what do we accomplish? I say that he accomplished a little because the forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change were and continued to quarrel with some of them and the government that claims to be its incubator. And made it a damaged government. Until a safe path is found that leads to stability, effectiveness and efficiency of the government, the voices of teenagers who demand the dissolution of the partnership between civilians and military in managing the state during the transition period must be politically silenced. What is required in my estimation is to consolidate the partnership between civilians and military and the majority and minorities in the administration of the state to be a real partnership. But what do I mean by true partnership?
For everyone to have an active role in the administration of the state:
Partnership means, as the honorable reader knows, that each of the partners has a share in the thing that is the subject of the partnership, and that share gives him the right to participate in the administration, which is taking and implementing decisions. The success of the partnership and necessarily requires equality between the partners and justice among them. The real partnership between civilians and the military and between the majority and minorities in the administration of the Sudanese state is that each party has a just, effective and effective presence in all institutions and centers for taking and implementing decisions to reach the objectives of the rational and just state administration. What happened and is happening today in addressing internal issues and in the relationship with the outside world is very far from partnership.
