Sudanese PM says current dispute is not between military and civilians

KHARTOUM, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) — Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said on Sunday that the current dispute in the country is not between the military and civilians, but between those who support democratic civilian transformation and those who try to block it.

“Unity of the forces in the revolution is the guarantee to prevent the transition from standing in the way of all threats,” Hamdok said in a speech broadcast on Sudan’s official TV on Sunday.

The prime minister urged all parties to adhere strictly to the constitutional document, to abstain from unilateral positions and to fully assume their responsibilities.

He stressed that the empowerment removal committee is one of the benefits of the revolution that must be defended and preserved.

Earlier on Sunday, security forces withdrew from surveillance at the headquarters of the Empowerment Removal Committee amid mounting tensions between the military and civilian components in the transitional government.

Since the announcement of the thwarted coup attempt on Sept. 21, differences between the military and civilian partners in the transitional government have escalated further.

Sudan will be governed for a 39-month transitional period under a transitional government established after the ouster of former President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019. The transitional period will be followed by elections to form a new government.
