Khartoum, July 5: Sudanese ruling Transitional Military Council (TMC) have reached an agreement with the opposition alliance of activists and protesters on Thursday to share power establishing a sovereign council during a three-year transitional ruling period until next election, an African Union (AU) mediators on Friday announced.

According to Al-Jazeera news reports, the two sides, whose officials have held discussions in the past two days in Khartoum, agreed to “establish a sovereign council by rotation between the military and civilians for a period of three years or slightly more,” mediator Mohamed Hassan Labatt said during a media conference.

Omar al-Degair, the head of the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) – an umbrella outfit of opposition coalition – said, “This agreement opens the way for the formation of the institutions of the transitional authority, and we hope that this is the beginning of a new era.”

TMC deputy chief general Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo said the deal will be “comprehensive and will not exclude anyone”. He said, “We would like to reassure all political forces, armed movements and all those who participated in the change from young men and women … that this agreement will be comprehensive and will not exclude anyone.”

Daglo, who leads Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces (RSF) accused of violently dispersing a June 3 sit-in protesters that claimed the lives of dozens of people, said, “We thank the African and Ethiopian mediators for their efforts and patience. We also thank our brothers in the Forces for Freedom and Change for the good spirit.”

The TMC and opposition coalition have been at loggerhead for weeks over who would rule the nation after a protest in April ousted ex-President Omar al-Bashir forcibly.

Our conditions included the categorical rejection of a permanent military presidency of the sovereign council, the ratification of previous agreements between the two parties, the handing over of a written document by the military council confirming this, and the review of confidence-building and approval procedures,” protest group leader Madani Abbas Madani said ahead of negotiations began.
