Sudan’s Military Leaders Again Delay Transition to Civilian Rule 

HeadlineApr 07, 2023

Sudan’s military rulers have once again delayed signing an agreement that would transition the nation from military to civilian rule. Thursday’s postponement prompted a new round of protests in the capital Khartoum and other cities. The agreement would allow for elections and the formation of a civilian government after over a year of military rule following the October 2021 coup. Security forces fired tear gas at massive crowds as protesters were heard chanting, “No militia can rule a country.” Protesters also marked the fourth anniversary of a 2019 sit-in that led to the overthrow of longtime authoritarian President Omar al-Bashir.

Hanady Awad: “For the martyrs who have given their lives for this country, the protest will reach its end, God willing, and we will keep going until we reach a civilian democratic rule, and without the return of any totalitarian system in Sudan again.”

Many have criticized the deal for excluding the establishment of a transitional justice system or the implementation of key military reforms.
