New Sovereign Council in Sudan

  • 22 Aug 2019
  • 1 min read

Recently, the swearing-in of a new sovereign council and appointment of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, took place in Sudan.

  • It marked the transition towards the civilian rule, as it is the first time that Sudan was not under full military rule since Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir took the control in a military coup in 1989.
  • The New sovereign council replaces the Transitional Military Council (TMC) that was formed after the Omar al-Bashir was removed.
  • The New sovereign council (11 member body) is a civilian-dominated ruling council but it will be headed by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who already headed the TMC.
    • For the first 21 months of the 39-month transition period, General Burhan will lead Sudan, until a fully civilian government takes over.
