Muhammad Ibrahim Nugud (1930 – 22 March 2012) was a Sudanese politician who was Secretary-General of the Sudanese Communist Party.[1] He succeeded Abdel Khaliq Mahjub after the latter's execution in 1971, leading the party for over 40 years; his leadership was viewed as a period of long decline for the party. He stood as a candidate in the 2010 presidential election, but performed poorly. Nugud died in London in March 2012, when he was about 80 years old.[2]
