Chairperson of the AU Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, welcomed with enthusiasm the civilian and military declaration signed by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, President of the Sudanese Supreme Council, and Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, according to the text.
Mahamat, it adds, described the agreement as an “important step towards the return to constitutional order as enshrined in the Khartoum agreements of August 19, 2019, which frame the consensual and democratic transition in Sudan.”
He also called on the international community to renew its commitment in solidarity with Sudan so that it regains peace and prepares for “regular and free elections, the only path to put a definitive end to the institutional turmoil and ensure its sustainable development.”
Al-Burhan and Hamdok signed on Sunday at the presidential palace a power-sharing agreement and promised to resume the transition process, after dates of national and international pressure to solve the constitutional rupture.
The agreement, which includes releasing political prisoners arrested after October 25, was rejected by the Sudanese Professionals Association, one of the protagonists of the 2019 anti-government protests.
