Sudan’s ruling military council and a coalition of opposition and protest groups have reached an agreement to share power during a transition period leading to elections.
Seating in the capital Khartoum, the two sides agreed to “establish a sovereign council by rotation between the military and civilians for a period of three years or slightly more,”
The two sides also agreed to form an independent technocratic government and to launch a transparent, independent investigation into violent events in recent weeks that has seen more than a hundred die and a hundred more injured.
Further, the two factions agreed to postpone the establishment of a legislative council. They had previously agreed that the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) coalition would take two-thirds of a legislative council’s seats before security forces crushed a sit-in protest on June 3, killing dozens, and talks collapsed.
