Le Monde: Sudan's new government .. There is no room for breath
Le Monde said the new Sudanese prime minister had six months to impose himself on the generals, restructure the economy and establish peace with armed groups.
The newspaper pointed out that the government of Abdullah Hamdouk can not benefit from a period of grace in which they catch their breath, in light of the issues that are not expected to delay, because it is a valve to ensure the stability of Sudan after the end of the dictatorship of General Omar al-Bashir.
She noted that Hamdok has not yet named his cabinet, which should hold its first meeting on August 31, and has not found time to enjoy being the country's first civilian prime minister in 30 years.
Instead, he must immediately begin to address issues on several predictable fronts and be ready to face issues on other unexpected fronts that may be ominous.
She said the first thing Hamdok should do was find money to get Sudan out of an economic crisis that was a major factor in the fall of Bashir last April.
For this reason, this respected economist, according to Le Monde, has been reiterating for several days that it is necessary to get eight billion dollars, of which two billion will arrive within three months to end the risk of shortages in supplies.
This goal, as it stands, does not seem far-fetched. A quick return of things is likely to lead to calm and the lifting of long-standing US sanctions will open the door to an international bailout for Sudan's financial sector.
Next, Le Monde says, the new prime minister will have to tackle three key issues. Security and intelligence officials, on the joints of the economy, an estimated 70%, according to some independent experts.
Le Monde concludes: The third issue that Hamdouk should tackle without waiting is to achieve peace with armed groups within six months. If all this is achieved, it will culminate in democratic elections in 2022.
