Sudan's ruling National Congress Party (NCP) Thursday said if it wins the elections, it will form a broad-based government involving all Sudanese political parties, provided that those parties accept the final result of the elections.

"The NCP strategy stands on forming a broad-based government to face the existing challenges, in particular organizing the referendum on self-determination for southern Sudan," Mustafa Osman Ismail, a prominent NCP leader and Sudanese presidential adviser, told reporters in Khartoum Thursday.

"The way how we will deal with the parties depends on how they will deal with the election results. If they acknowledge the results, definitely we won't take exclusive possession of the power," he added.

He said "if there are those who want to adopt a non-peaceful position towards the result, the concerned authorities will be responsible for guarding security and preserving the freedom of the citizens."

He affirmed that the Sudanese elections, which are expected to wrap up on Thursday, will open a new and positive page in the country's relation with the international community.

Meanwhile, Sudanese opposition National Umma Party earlier cautiously welcomed NCP's invitation to participate in the coming government, while Hassan al-Turabi, secretary general of the Popular Congress Party, affirmed that his party will not get into partnership with the government.

Similarly, President of Sudan People's Liberation Movement ( SPLM) Salva Kiir Mayardit called for involving the Juab opposition alliance parties in the new government and urged that the program of the new government should be directed towards the referendum of the south.
