Sudan’s Military Rulers Agree to Share Power with Civilian Protesters

HeadlineJul 18, 2019

Sudan’s military rulers have agreed to share power with civilian opposition groups, capping weeks of tense negotiations following the massacre of nonviolent protesters last month by Sudanese soldiers. The agreement will establish an 11-member governing body to rule Sudan for the next three years, ahead of elections scheduled for 2022. The agreement was welcomed by Sudan’s ruling generals, as well as Sudanese protest leader Ibrahim al-Amin.

Ibrahim al-Amin: “Today we look forward to a new phase, one where we can rely on ourselves and move away from all that divides us. Sudan is for all Sudanese people. And yes, those who signed here today are a part of the revolution and are a part of the Sudanese people, but their services and support will be reflected in the coming government for all Sudanese people.”

Last month, soldiers with the ruling Transitional Military Council opened fire on sit-in protesters demanding democratic reforms, killing more than 100 people and wounding more than 500 others.
