The Sudanese Sovereign Council: We seek to hold elections within 8 months

A member of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, Mohamed Bartam, said the council is committed to the unity of the country and the preservation of the constitutional document.

He added that the Sudanese Sovereignty Council seeks to hold elections in the country within 8 months.

Bartam’s statements have arrived in one moment in which the capital, Khartoum, witnessed massive demonstrations, rejecting the commander’s decisions in head of the armed forces, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, which issued on 25 October last to dissolve the Sovereign Council and the Council of Ministers and declare a state of emergency.

“Millions of anger”

The coordination of the “Resistance Committees in Khartoum” had called demonstrations under the name of “Millions of Anger “to bring down the Military Council, two days after Al-Burhan announced the formation of a new Sovereign Council.

Correct path

In parallel, council member Yasser Al-Atta said yesterday, Friday, that the formation of the new council falls within the framework of correcting the course of the December revolution to consolidate the foundations of the marital status.

In a statement to the Sovereign Council, he added that the step came “after a long process of consultations with all the components of the political and social forces”.

Interestingly, the Sudanese army chief announced on Thursday the formation of a new Transitional Sovereignty Council, from which he excluded four representatives of the Forces of Freedom and Change, the civil alliance that emerged from the uprising that overthrew Omar al -Bashir in 2019, as announced by official television. The formation of the council also came weeks (October 25) after the military announced the dissolution of the government and the former council, and the arrest of some activists and civilian leaders, while Hamdok was placed under house arrest, according to what the UN envoy has confirmed more than once, despite Al-Burhan’s denial of the matter.
