Sudan : Gen. Abdel Al-Burhan appoints himself as chairman of the Sovereign Council

 Khartoum:Sudan's army head Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan issued a decree Thursday to form a new transitional Sovereign Council, appointing himself its chairman.

Al-Burhan and his deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, known as Hameti, kept their positions they had in the previous Council.

The announcement did not include someone to represent the eastern part of the country, according to the Sudanese official television that said the representative will be appointed at a later date.

The new Council retained members from the previously dissolved Council, including Shams al-Din Khabbashi, Yasser al-Atta, Jabir Ibrahim, Malik Agar, El-Hadi Idris Yahya, El-Tahir Hajar and Raja Nicola.



 Al-Burhan declared a state of emergency on Oct. 25 and dissolved the transitional Sovereign Council and government, triggering mass protests.

The move came amid mutual accusations between the military and politicians in the wake of a failed coup attempt in September.

Before the military takeover, Sudan was administered by a sovereign council of military and civilian officials which was overseeing the transition period until elections are held in 2023 as part of a precarious power-sharing pact between the military and the Forces for Freedom and Change coalition.
