African Union Envoy: Sudanese Finalize Power-sharing Deal

Saturday, 03 August 2019 02:38 AM

CAIRO (AP) — The African Union envoy to Sudan says the protest coalition and the ruling military council have finalized a power-sharing agreement.

Mohammed el-Hassan Lebatt says early Saturday that the two sides have agreed on a constitutional declaration outlining the division of power for a three-year transition to elections. He did not provide further details or say when the agreement would be signed.

The military overthrew President Omar al-Bashir in April following months of mass protests against his three-decade-long authoritarian rule. The protesters remained in the streets, demanding a rapid transition to civilian rule. They have been locked in tense negotiations with the military for weeks while holding mass protests.

Sudan's state-run SUNA news agency quoted protest leader Omar al-Dagir as saying the agreement would be signed Sunday.
