Sudanese military wants to reinstate ousted Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and release leaders arrested after the coup last month, mediators have announced.
Fadlallah Burma Nasir, head of the Umma Party, confirmed the agreement to reporters on Sunday. A group of Sudanese mediators also issued statements on the agreement.
“A political agreement has been reached between General Burhan, Abdalla Hamdok, political parties and civil society organizations for Hamdok to return to his post, and the release of political prisoners,” Nasir said.
Hamdok has formed an independent cabinet of technical experts and all political prisoners will be released under the agreement between the military and political parties, Nasir said.
Nasir added that he took part in the meeting late on Saturday when the mediators agreed.
The Sovereign Council will hold a meeting on Sunday before announcing the agreement, said a source close to the talks.
The coalition comes three weeks after General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan disrupted Sudan’s transition to civilian rule and the overthrow of the government.
On October 25, al-Burhan declared a state of emergency, abolished temporary government, and built up a civilian administration – a global crackdown on people and street protests.
Hamdok was detained in a domestic prison when the military seized power.
The takeover ended a long-standing alliance between the military and the military that helped oust former President Omar al-Bashir in 2019.
A statement from the mediators stated that the agreement was reached following an agreement between political parties, former terrorist groups and military officials.
“The agreement will be announced today after the signing of its resolutions and political affiliations,” it said.
The move comes just hours after a civil war was called for great demonstrations on the Sabbath.
Wednesday was the day of the killing of 16 people.
The death toll from the abduction has risen to about 40 on Saturday, Sudanese officials say. A search operation has begun.
Meetings have often turned violent, with police and soldiers using tear gas and tear gas to disperse the crowd. Authorities have strongly opposed the use of biological weapons and insist that they use “lesser force” to kill people.
Acting ‘does not end protests’
Al Jazeera of Hiba Morgan, a reporter from Khartoum, said that several people who took part in the anti-terrorist protests and members of political parties told him that, although Hamdok was reinstated, he did not want any alliance with the military.
“Many of them have told Al Jazeera that they have seen how the power-sharing agreement went, and they have seen what the military can do and how they can bring down or set aside the alliance,” Morgan said.
“Most of them say that, even if Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok returns to office, it will not end the protests,” he said.
“While most of them say they want to end political instability, and they want more change, they do not want the military to continue participating in national politics. They want to return to their military bases, and they want a change for the common people. ”
Al-Burhan, a senior official, stressed that the military move “was not a coup d’état” but “a catalyst for change” as sectarian tensions and growing divisions between civilians and the military forces under the government he removed removed.
Earlier this month, he announced the new civilian governing body when he retained his position as leader, along with a senior military officer, three senior soldiers, three former terrorist leaders and one man.
Morgan said questions were still about the decision-making power Hamdok would have if he was reinstated as Prime Minister.
“Any minister who chooses must be approved by the Sovereign Council, and this is governed by [coup leader] General al-Burhan. “It is not clear how much freedom he will have when it comes to electing his ministers,” he said.
Western powers that have supported Sudan’s political transformation have condemned the military coup and suspended $ 100 million in aid to Sudan’s economy.
The return of Hamdok, an economist who worked for the United Nations and African institutions, was a major milestone in the world.
