CAIRO –

Sadiq al-Mahdi, leader of Sudan's opposition Umma Party, called on Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to step down, the party said in a statement.

Sky News quoted the party as saying Mahdi was ready to meet opposition representatives "to agree on details of the transition to the new regime."

The opposition National Umma Party and the forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change announced on Saturday that the Sudanese authorities had prevented the establishment of a mass rally in Dar al-Ummah, where political and civil forces were supposed to take part in popular demonstrations.

The party denounced the decision to deny the opposition forces the right to conduct their activities on the basis of the Emergency Law, describing it as "defective" and that "the establishment of peaceful activities within the parties' houses is a right under the law."

The statement condemned the Sudanese authorities to hold a symposium dedicated to "the memory of martyrs" and "solidarity with the wounded, displaced and arbitrarily detained," announcing the organization of the symposium, next Wednesday.

For its part, the security authorities said that the declaration of a state of emergency allows to prevent any unauthorized gatherings, while the Umma Party that "the Declaration of Emergency itself has not yet been decided."
