Sudan’s military leaders have announced an agreement with the opposition alliance for a three-year transition period to a civilian administration.
The Transitional Military Council (TMC) says the alliance will have two-thirds of the seats on a Legislative Council.
At a joint news conference, Lt Gen Yasser Al-Atta says a final agreement on power sharing will be signed with the opposition alliance – the Declaration of Freedom and Change Forces (DFCF) – within 24 hours.
That would include the forming of a new Sovereign Council which will rule the country until elections.
Sudan has been ruled by the Military Council since last month’s toppling of President Omar Al-Bashir.
Protests that led to his downfall have continued amid demands for full civilian government.
