Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok refuses to bow


Abdalla Hamdok has announced that he will not dissolve the government to form another. It was General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahmane al-Burhan, President of the Sovereign Transitional Council, who formally made this request during a meeting on Thursday, 14 October. This development comes at a time when tensions have reached a height between the military and the civilians who share the transitional power. At the same time, calls for demonstrations were launched for this Saturday, October 16.

The demonstration is intended to protest against “the domination that the military exercised during this transitional period”. The political parties and social forces calling for the rally unite with the civilians participating in the transition. They demand respect for the constitutional declaration from August 2019.

The political crisis is getting worse as November 17 approaches, when the presidency of the Sovereign Council is expected to turn into a civilian one, which the military seems to want to postpone until next summer. According to what the Sudan Tribune reveals, Prime Minister Hamdok reminded the military on Thursday that he was elected by the forces of freedom and change to “lead the transition to democracy”.

Broken trust between soldiers and civilians In fact, this political crisis has been going on for several months. She was initially quite quiet before arriving at the alleged failed coup attempt three weeks ago. The next day, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the military component of the sovereign council carried out a formal attack on civilians. They responded by accusing the military of leading “a coup and backing from the democratic transition”.

Between the two camps, civilians and soldiers, trust is broken. The attempt at dialogue initiated by the Prime Minister failed. A strong mobilization during the rally on Saturday could force the soldiers to resume discussions with civilians.
