Sudanese interim leader confirms military committed transferring power to civilians

Sudan’s interim leader said military council has committed to be handing out power to a civilian authority in the country, but opposition leaders have suspended talking not believing the military rulers on pledge to transfer the control.

Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said Sunday, “The transitional military council is complementary to the uprising and the revolution. The council is committed to handing over power to the people.”

Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) spokesman Mohamed al-Amin Abdulaziz said the military council seems not serious about the transfer of control and the council is in fact representing part of the old regime.

He added a delegation will be sent to United States for the removal of Sudan from its list of state sponsors of terrorism.

Meanwhile, protesters in huge number have continued sitting outside the military headquarters in capital city Khartoum putting pressure to form civil government.

Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said Sunday, “The transitional military council is complementary to the uprising and the revolution. The council is committed to handing over power to the people.”

One of the protesters said he has no trust in Burhan, who is taking too much time in transferring complete power to a civilian government.

Following months of protests the military overthrew Omar al-Bashir on April 11, bring to an end his 30-year-old regime.
