SPA Calls New Al-Burhan-Hamdok Agreement “Treason”
The SPA rejects the Al-Burhan-Hamdok agreement and describes it as an act of “treason”.
The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) rejected the new political agreement concluded today, Sunday, between the Army Chief Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, describing it as "treason" and an "attempt to legitimize the coup."
The Association said in a statement posted on its Twitter page, “The treasonous agreement signed today between Hamdok and al-Burhan is totally rejected and it concerns only the parties who signed it,” describing it as a false attempt to legitimize the last coup and the Military Council authority and as “political suicide” for Abdullah Hamdok.
وعلى قواها الحية الملتزمة بلاءاتها المعلنة أن ترفع وتوسِّع من أشكال تنسيقها وأن تتجاهل دعوات الإنكفاء وعزل قوى الثورة عن بعضها، فالنصر معقود بلواء تكاتف وتكامل قوى الثورة الظافرة، وهو آتٍ دون ريب#ما_بتحكمونا#تسقط_شراكة_الدم#لاتفاوض_لاشراكة_لاشرعية— تجمع المهنيين السودانيين (@AssociationSd) November 21, 2021

In another tweet, the SPA affirmed that it will continue to stand in the line of fire and maintain steadfastness, reiterating its rejection of the agreement concluded today.
The statement considered that the "subjugation agreement" does not, in any way, represent the aspirations of the people and is mere ink on paper, adding that this document constitutes "a betrayal to the blood of the December Revolution martyrs."
The SPA also expressed its firm commitment to the political declaration it had proposed, calling on the "revolution’s forces" to reconsider it, given the recent developments in the country.
It is worth noting that Sudan's Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, arrived on Sunday at the presidential palace, in his first appearance only a few hours after his house arrest was lifted following a "political agreement" with Sudan's Army Chief General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.
The agreement stipulated that Hamdok would be reinstated to his earlier position, and all political prisoners imprisoned since the October coup would be released.
