A senior Sudanese opposition figure said on Sunday her party has been invited to meet government officials this month to discuss a national dialogue aimed at resolving multiple crises.Umma party deputy head Mariam al-Mahdi told AFP her party had been invited by the African Union for a meeting this month in Addis Ababa.The meeting could pave the way for the Umma to join the dialogue but it is unclear whether Bashir's ruling National Congress Party will attend, as it shunned similar negotiations in March.Mahdi said if the meeting was successful, her father could return to Sudan soon afterwards.Bashir, who ousted Sadiq al-Mahdi in a 1989 military coup, announced the dialogue in January 2014 and it was initially well received by his opponents.
