Sudan Military Finally Agree To Share Powers With Opposition

Sudan’s Military Leaders have reached an agreement with the opposition alliance to share power until elections can be held, mediators say.

The two sides agreed to rotate control of the Sovereign Council – the top tier of power – for at least three years.

The African Union (AU) said they have also pledged to form an independent technocratic government and to investigate the violence of recent weeks.

News of the agreement reportedly sparked frenzied street celebrations.

Sudan has been in turmoil since the military ousted President Omar Al-Bashir in April,  following a popular uprising against Mr Bashir, who seized power in a coup in June 1989.

The latest round of talks took place in the capital, Khartoum, earlier this week and were heavily mediated by the Ethiopian Prime Minister and members of the Pan-African AU.

Elections will then be held once this transition period ends.

Last month, representatives of the protesters were in talks with the military over who would take control of Sudan.
