General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who was behind the military coup in Sudan at the end of October, and the ousted Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok have reached an agreement that Abdalla Hamdok will return to his post and appoint a new government of technocrats.
The information comes from the chairman of the opposition Umma party, Fadlallah Burma Nasir, who was present during Saturday’s negotiations between the military and civilian politicians.
All politicians imprisoned during the coup will also be released, according to the agreement, which is expected to be announced later on Sunday.
The coup in Sudan has been condemned by a united world and large sections of its own population, who, despite violent attacks, have been protesting against the military almost daily. At least 40 protesters are estimated to have been killed during the protests.
