SUDAN CRISIS: Military And Opposition Agree On A 3yr Power Sharing Deal

Sudanese military leaders have agreed on a 3-year transitional authority with the opposition alliance.

Lt Gen Yasser al-Atta speaking at a joint news conference said a final agreement on power-sharing would be signed with the opposition alliance (DFCF) within 24 hours. That would include the forming of a sovereign council which will rule the country until elections.

He added that the opposition alliance would have two-thirds of the seats on a 300-member transitional legislative council while the rest would be taken by parties not part of the alliance.

Speaking to the BBC Newsday programme, Sadiq Yousuf, a member of the DFCF negotiating team said that the composition of the 11-member supreme council was still being discussed. He said:

The issue has been on the number of members of the supreme council. We want eight civilians, three from the military, but they want seven military and four members.

The military took over following the ouster of President Omar Al Bashir. Protestors have been demanding civilian rule since then.
