Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan announced, during a press conference, the dissolution of the Transitional Sovereignty Council and the Council of Ministers, the declaration of a state of emergency in the country, and the dismissal of state governors, pointing out that the general managers of the ministries and states will run the business.
Al-Burhan confirmed that “an independent government will rule Sudan until the date of the elections,” explaining that “the elections will take place in July 2023.”
Al-Burhan pointed out that “the balanced government has turned into a conflict between the transitional parties,” stressing that “the conflict threatens the security and peace of Sudan.”
He added, “We will create an appropriate environment for political parties leading up to the elections,” referring to “the suspension of the work of an anti-corruption committee.”
The head of the Sudanese Sovereign Council stressed that he is “committed to the peace agreement signed with the rebel factions in Juba.”
Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan explained that “a revolutionary parliament will be formed from the youth,” adding: “No party or entity will impose its will on Sudan.”
He pointed out that “there is a need for the army to protect the security and safety of the country as stipulated in the constitutional declaration,” stressing that “differences between politicians, ambition, and incitement forced them to act.”
