Three generals in Sudan’s ruling Transitional Military Council have offered their resignations. The trio is considered to be avowed Islamists and allies of former President Omar al-Bashir.
Protest leaders had demanded the resignation of the generals as one of their key demands. Speaking to the BBC, Dr Sara Abdelgalil, of the Sudanese Professionals Association, the main group behind the protests said:
What we are hoping to do today is to continue our peaceful resistance. Regime members and the NCP [the ousted president’s party] are trying to show themselves as being legitimate to continue ruling the transitional period.
The three generals who have offered to resign are Omar Zain al-Abideen, Jalal al-Deen al-Sheikh and Al-Tayeb Babakr Ali Fadeel.
