Cartoon: Sudan’s military has ousted former Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdouk, who was ousted and placed under house arrest. This is in accordance with the agreement signed between the government and the army on Sunday. The 14-point agreement was signed at the president’s palace in Khartoum. The army seized control of the country at the end of October. A state of emergency was declared later. It has been agreed to release all political prisoners arrested since then.
Mediation led by academics, politicians and journalists led to a consensus. At the same time, 40 people were killed in the weeks-long clashes that followed the military takeover.
The new interim government will be formed after talks between military chief General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Hamdock. Hamdock said the agreement was signed to avoid further bloodshed.
