A 10-member delegation from protest organizers in Sudan submitted in a Sunday meeting a list of demands including creation of a civilian government to the new military rulers.
Thousands of protesters remained encamped outside the military headquarters overnight into Sunday to keep the military council into pressure to create a civilian government.
The military overthrew President Omar al-Bashir, who ruled for about 30 years, on Thursday. Within 36 hours the head of ruling military council General Aawd Ibn Auf on demands of protesters and Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Burhan succeeded him.
One of the leaders of protesters said the demands include restructuring of feared National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) of Sudan.
Omer Eldigair added, “We will continue… our sit-in until all our demands are met.”
According to the Freedom and Change alliance the civilian representatives should be accepted and also should be running daily administration.
A protester who spent the night outside military headquarter in capital Khartoum said the demands should be met but both the sides need to be flexible on the matters.
A day before Burhan said Bashir’s establishment will be dismantled and night-tiem curfew will be lifted too with immediate effect.
Burhan was sworn in on Friday.
