Sudan: Ministers resign in protest against deal with military

“Twelve cabinet ministers have submitted their resignation to newly reinstated Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok in protest against a political deal between the prime minister and the country’s ruling military council. On Sunday, Hamdok was reinstated after signing a political agreement with the head of the military council, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, to end a weeks-long crisis that threatened to undermine the country’s political transition. While the deal was largely welcomed by the international community, Sudanese pro-democracy activists have rejected it as an ‘attempt to legitimise the coup.’ They demand that the military should not be part of any future Sudan government. The resigned ministers were part of a transitional government led by Hamdok that was dissolved on October 25 by al-Burhan.” (11/23/21)
