Sudan’s reinstated PM Hamdok promises a path to democracy
Al Jazeera, 22 Nov 2021
It has been nearly a month since the military seized power in Sudan, dissolving the interim government and declaring a state of emergency.
However, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has now agreed to restore the planned transition to civilian rule by reinstating deposed leader Abdalla Hamdok as prime minister.
But it remains unclear exactly how much power the reinstated government will hold.
The country's main opposition coalition says it will not recognise any agreement that shares power with the armed forces.
Al Jazeera's Hiba Morgan reports from Khartoum.
A political agreement has been signed in Sudan enabling Abdalla Hamdok to be reinstated as prime minister.
Sudan’s top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan signed the deal with Hamdok to restore the transition to civilian rule nearly a month after a military coup.
The 14-point deal, signed in the presidential palace in Khartoum, also provides for the release of all political prisoners detained during the coup and stipulates that a 2019 constitutional declaration be the basis for a political transition, according to details read out on state TV.
