Khartoum.15.2019 Sudanese Transitional Military Council and protest movement have agreed to a three-year transition period. The decision came despite talks remaining unfinished in Khartoum, where protesters have massed outside of defence headquarters.
The two sides announced early Wednesday after nearly 12 hours of negotiations that they had reached an agreement on the transition period.
“We agreed on a transitional period of three years,” Lieutenant General Yasser Al Atta, a member of the military council told reporters.
Mr Atta said a final agreement on the sharing of power, including the forming of the next ruling body – the sovereign council – will be signed with the protest movement, the Alliance for Freedom and Change, within a day.
“We vow to our people that the agreement will be completed fully within 24 hours in a way that it meets the people’s aspirations,” Mr Atta said.
He said of the transition period, the first six months will be allocated to signing peace accords
Mr Atta said that during the transition period parliament will be composed of 300 members, of which 67 per cent will be from the Alliance for Freedom and Change and the rest will be from other political groups.
The Alliance for Freedom and Change meanwhile said the shootings on Monday were an attempt to “disturb the breakthrough” in talks.🔥15 Views
