Sudanese opposition starts indefinite rally in front of the presidential palace


Supporters of the newly formed political group Misak-i Watani, a splinter from the ruling coalition Alliance For Freedom and Change, are holding an indefinite sit-in in front of the Presidential Palace in Sudan, demanding the abolition of the government and the representation of more groups in power.

Activists set up tents in front of the Presidential Palace in Khartoum and said the protests would continue until the government was dissolved.

The day before, a demonstration was also held in front of the Presidential Palace, the participants of which called for “saving the people’s revolution” and “improving living conditions.” The demonstrators chanted the slogans “Patient people are hungry”, “One army, one people”, “The government must be disbanded” and called on the army to show more rigor in governing the country.

The power crisis between military personnel and civilian groups in Sudan has intensified since the attempted coup d’état in Sudan on 21 September. The army announces the dissolution of the government and the dismissal of some members of the civilian administration.

The transition period has continued in the country since August 2019, with the signing of a peace agreement between the separating power civilian groups, the army and the armed movements.
