The West will not accept the unilateral move of the Sudanese army

The move by Sudanese army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan to form a new sovereign council to govern the state has been criticized by the West as one-sided. Burhan took power last month, overthrowing a transitional government set up to establish democracy in the country.

 

“This unilateral move by the military undermines our commitment to implement the previously agreed transitional framework,” Norway, the United Kingdom, the United States, the European Union and Switzerland said in a joint statement on Friday.

Burhan has detained ministers, including the prime minister, who represented the people in the sovereign government. Since then, there has been a movement in Sudan. However, Burhan ignored that and formed a 14-member sovereign council last Thursday. He himself is the head of this council. The council was sworn in on Thursday night.

The deputy head of the council is Mohammad Hamdan Dagalo, a leader of the paramilitary squad Rapid Support Force. The council also includes three senior military figures who were also in the previous council. There are also five people’s representatives and three former rebels. In addition, three are yet to be sworn in.
