Such a document would replace the November 21 political agreement between Hamdok and coup leader, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who remains as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and Chairman of the Transitional Sovereign Council, the last entity until the elections are held in 2023, whose date is still to be defined.
The November text was rejected by broad opposition sectors, such as the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC), former allies of the prime minister, which considered the event as a betrayal and a legitimization of the October 25 coup d’etat.
For Hamdok, the Government has not yet been formed because the “political forces that support the revolution and the democratic civil transition are engaged in a serious and deep dialogue.”
On his Twitter account, the president wrote that the purpose is to agree on a national charter that establishes a broad front to achieve and consolidate the democratic civil transition.
Sudan has been experiencing a political instability situation since popular protests ousted President Omar al-Bashir from power in April 2019.
