To satisfy the yearning demands of our people in North Sudan who are looking forwards to see active Sudanese political power united to topple the tyrant National Congress Party regime; that degraded people of Sudan, committed war crimes and genocide against them, in addition to displacement of millions of innocent civilians internally and externally, some are refugees in neighboring countries and some other in diasporas scattered around the world.

Moreover; the regime of the National Congress Party dismissed best of the scholars and experts ever produced in Sudan. Such criminal acts perpetrated by the National Congress Party; destroyed the social fabric and unity in the state. Therefore; it was our obligation to get united and stand up committed and determined, and move forwards towards new dawn bright future.

The National Consensus Force, the Sudan Revolutionary Front, some women and youth organizations and civil societies groups met and in historical achievement; reached on consensus political vision that shifts Sudan from totalitarian system, towards; democracy, integrity, peace and country of equal citizenship. The new vision unfettered Sudan from totalitarian system run by few parasites and punishers who monopolized power for more than two decades and more, without slightest religious conscious or moral wisdom.

The forces mentioned agreed by consensus to topple and change the regime of the National Congress Party and also agreed on transitional interim period of four years; which will be followed by free and fair election within which the constitutional conference would be held by national consensus to define how Sudan state would be governed by effective participants from the regions of Sudan, Sudan political parties, active forces and civil societies.

Sudan National and Revolutionary Forces determined to continue fierce struggle to achieve the yearning aspiration of Sudanese people for democracy, justice peace and establishment of strategic relationships between the two Sudans; which would gradually lead to the creation of voluntary unity between the two independent states; as a consequence; would support and guarantee regional and international security, peace and stability.

Sudan National and Revolutionary Forces are determined to continue fierce struggle to achieve ambitions of Sudanese people in democracy and end of wars. The way of sacrifices and the consensus is the unity by which Sudan could be saved from more divisions and lost or rolling towards cliffs of economic collapse and impoverishing of millions of the people, and imposing of mono culture or politics, in a country known for its diversity and varieties; such misleading conducts disparage the dignity of Sudan and its people.

Guided by the New Dawn Convention, which leads to a democratic federal state in Sudan based on equality between the citizens; assures that the people of Sudan are the source of power, the equal citizenship is basic to get rights and perform duties, and guarantees individual and group freedoms and the state institutions are separated from religion institution to guarantee that the religion is not exploited in to politic.

For these reasons; we signed on this document are obliged with the following:
