Sudan’s opposition today prepared for a massive strike, shortly after power-sharing negotiations with the military council stalled once again.
The Sudanese Professionals Association, SPA said in a statement that the parties have been unable to agree on the final details of a “sovereign council,” a supreme body that would rule the country until elections, following the ouster of Omar al-Bashi.
SPA, which has spearheaded months of protests, called on opposition supporters to prepare for a general political strike and a civil disobedience campaign to bolster their demands for a civilian-led government.
Negotiations between the military council and opposition members had been bumpy for several weeks.
On May 16th, both sides announced a 72-hour suspension of talks after being unable to come to an agreement. Negotiations had then resumed on Sunday.
