Date: Khartoum (Cairo), May 06, 2012
Dear Francois Holland,
The French people have just chosen you to preside over their destiny for the next five years.
I would like to express to you – Mr. President - my warmest and sincerest congratulations, both on my name and on behalf of the BROAD NATIONAL FRONT - BNF. For us this historical victory rewards your continuous commitment to serving the French people. It is also the natural result of an exceptional campaign that you led courageously showing to the entire world the vitality and universality of the principles of the French democracy.
The French people have thus chosen the path of change, development and a bright future. At this juncture when the world is in torment, doubt and global crisis, the French people—in full harmony with the values that are always at the very core of France’s identity— expressed freely their belief in progress and in the future under your promising leadership.
Your election gives rise to an immense hope in France, in Europe and beyond: the hope of France faithful to the principles of the French revolution, foremost among which are the solidarity and support to people who elsewhere are fighting against dictatorship and global injustice. We in the Sudan are heading forward- by our relentless struggle - to establish in the near future our own democracy in full respect of the principles of fundamental liberties and human rights. Your experience and your commitment to these principles are solid motivations and undeniable encouragement to us in our continuous struggle.
The Sudan-in-the-making looks with hope and optimism to participate with France under your leadership, to the efforts of preserving peace and prosperity in the world.
Dear President-elect of France, Be assured that you may count on us the people of the Sudan and on my own personal support.
Please accept, Mr. President-elect, the expression of our loftiest considerations and best wishes of a smashing success.
Ali Mahmoud HASSANEIN
President of the Sudan (BROAD NATIONAL FRONT - BNF
