Liberation: Sudanese agreement to launch a new era
The French newspaper Liberation said that the agreement reached in Sudan between the representatives of the protest movement and the leaders of the junta represents a significant progress towards the goal that the Sudanese aspire to achieve, the transfer of power to civilian figures.
The agreement was added to the first political declaration of July 17, marking the beginning of a new era in Sudan.
The Sudanese army and protest leaders agreed to formally set up the governing body on August 18 to lead the political transition. This body - the so-called sovereign council of five soldiers and six civilians - will be responsible for managing the political transition with parliament for more than three years. In accordance with the terms of the political declaration agreed between the two sides.
The newspaper said that the Sudanese expressed their joy in this achievement, noting that a crowd of them gathered outside the building that witnessed the initials of the agreement, and they chanted "our government is civil" and "revolution .. revolution."
Mohammed Hamdan Daglo (Hamidati), who signed on behalf of the military council, as the second person in it, said that the Sudan signed this agreement with a page of its history.
On the other hand, Liberation pointed out that this agreement culminated in a difficult period of labor, which was reached only after long and arduous negotiations between the two parties.
She pointed out that the Sudanese protest movement began on 19 December 2018, when thousands of Sudanese took to the streets to protest the rise in the price of bread three times, but that quickly turned to demonstrations that challenge the authority of ousted President Omar al-Bashir, and demands to step down, but rejected it , Prompting the army to overthrow him on April 11.
