Two public universities ban Bashir party’s activities

Two Sudanese public universities on 8 December banned political, cultural and social activities of the National Congress political party that continues to support the now-deposed president Omar al-Bashir, reports Middle East Monitor.

Local sources told Anadolu Agency that the ban came in official orders by the deanship of student affairs of Bahri and Zalingei universities. “Any social, cultural and political activities by the National Congress party, National Islamic Student Movement or the Islamic Student Movement are prohibited within the campuses of the Bahri and Zalingei universities,” the universities said in an official memo.

In response, students’ representative of the Popular Congress Party, Zaki Omar Amin, criticised the move, calling on “the university’s deanship of student affairs to cancel their decision”. The Popular Congress Party emerged from a split within the National Congress party.
