The chief of Abushook Camp, Hussien Sajo, told Miraya FM that the Kenana Forum did not involve IDPs in the region to find a solution to the Darfur conflict.

He further stated that this proves that the government is not serious in solving the crisis.

Meanhwile The closing session of the Sudan people's initiative witnessed disparities of views on the issue of appointing a first vice president for Darfur in addition to the level of governance in the region.

The spokesman of the forum, Dr Jalal Aldager, expected a presidential amnesty for all Darfurians detained if a political settlement to the Darfur conflict was reached.

The Secretary of Political Affairs in the National Congress Party, Mohammad Mendour Mahdi, affirmed that the recommendations of the Sudanese People's Initiative will provide options for the government delegation for the coming negotiations in Doha.

The forum will continue working in Khartoum until the end of this month.
