Sudan protesters, army announce new ruling body after deal

Sudanese factions agree on members of 11-seat ruling council Sudan forms 11-member sovereign council, headed by military leader

The Sudanese Forces for Freedom and Change coalition (FFC), on Tuesday, submitted its final list of candidates to the Sudanese Transitional Military Council (TMC) for the Sovereign Council which will lead the country during the coming transitional period.

The sovereign council will be led by Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who is the head of the transitional military council (TMC), which has ruled Sudan since April, when the military deposed veteran leader Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

Protest leaders have nominated a well-known economist, Abdalla Hamdok, to serve as prime minister during the transition.

Protesters continued to call for civilian rule in the wake of his replacement by the TMC.

"The formation of the 11-member Sovereign Council has been completed", the official said.

It was to be announced Sunday, to be followed by the disbanding military council.

General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who also headed the transitional military council, will be sworn in as president of the sovereign council on Wednesday. He will be formally appointed on Wednesday.

Amidst the euphoria celebrating the promise of civilian rule, unease was palpable however within the protest camp that brought about one of the most crucial changes in Sudan's modern history.

‘Need for Speed Heat’ Gameplay Trailer Shows Exhilarating Day & Nighttime Racing
Yes, there were hints at some of the game mechanics, features, and underlying story, but we didn't know how it'd mesh together. However, players with EA Access and Origin Access subscriptions will get early access starting on November 5.

One reason is the omnipresence in the transition of Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, a paramilitary commander and one of the signatories of the documents, whose forces are blamed for the deadly repression of the protests.

Pictures of the 75-year-old autocrat sitting in a cage during the hearing instantly became a symbol of his Islamist military regime's downfall. An investigator testified on Monday that al-Bashir had admitted to receiving $90 million from Saudi Arabia.

He told the court Bashir said the money was for spending outside the state budget, but did not give any details on who received it other than it was used for "donations".

On the streets of Khartoum, residents were not trying to hide their contentment at seeing their longtime tormentor in the dock.

In addition to these charges, al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for allegations surrounding atrocities in Darfur in the 2003 war.

According to him Bashir had said he also received two previous payments of $35 million and $30 million from Saudi King Abdullah, who died in 2015.

Amnesty urged the country's new transitional institutions to ratify the ICC's Rome Statute, a move that would allow for his transfer to the worldwide tribunal.
