The leaders of Sudan’s protest movement say they will name members of a transitional authority on Sunday, to replace the current military junta.
Following months of protests, the army ousted long-standing leader Omar Al-Bashir last week. But the protesters want the military to hand power to a civilian authority. A huge crowd once again gathered outside the military headquarters Friday, chanting: “Freedom, peace and justice”.
It was reported that thousands of people gathered in the centre of the capital, Khartoum, in the biggest protests since Bashir was forced from power.
The military has given in to several of the protesters’ demands, including saying they can name a Prime Minister and transferring Bashir to a maximum security prison.
However, it has refused to step aside and many Sudanese fear that the same elite of military officials and politicians is still in power behind the scenes.
