Sudanese protest leaders on Wednesday accused the generals of trying to delay the transition from power to civilian life, and threatened to launch a national movement of “disobedience”.
The development follows the demands by Sudan’s military rulers, on Tuesday (May 7) that the constitution of the interim government be guided by Sharia law.
Though the generals agreed generally on the proposed structure.
The protesters, whose months of street demonstrations helped force long time President Omar al-Bashir from office last month, have kept up their demands for change. They are calling on the military officers who took over to hand over power to civilians.
Discussions with the opposition were ongoing, but calling early elections within six months would be an option if they could not reach an agreement.
