Sudan PM Hamdok Reinstated, Political Prisoners Freed

Sudan’s military has agreed to reinstate ousted PM Abdalla Hamdok and released political prisoners who were detained when the coup began.

Sudan coup leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan announced the developments and said a deal for a new interim cabinet was signed with Hamdok. 

The 14-point deal was signed in the presidential palace in Khartoum just days after nationwide protests were held.

“He [Hamdok] was patient with us until we reached this moment,” said Burhan.

A new military-run Sovereign Council has also been established which would be chaired by Burhan himself. 

“I should begin by saying that our country is guarded and preserved by God Almighty and whatever we reach at dead end, my fellow Sudanese people are capable of restoring our country back on course,” said Hamdok. 

There is still no information on how much power the new Sudanese government would have.
