“Sudan’s ousted Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has been reinstated following last month’s coup when he was put under house arrest. He has appeared on TV to sign a new power-sharing agreement with coup leader Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan amid continuing mass protests. The civilian coalition that nominated Mr Hamdok as PM two years ago has refused to acknowledge any new deal. The pact had been struck with a gun to his head, a spokesperson told the BBC. ‘The future of the country will be determined by the young people on the ground,’ Siddiq Abu-Fawwaz, from the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) coalition, told BBC’s Newshour programme. On the streets of capital, Khartoum, the security forces have fired tear gas at protesters marching towards the presidential palace and demanding the military’s complete withdrawal from politics.” (11/21/21)
