Demonstrations continue in Sudan, protestors block major capital streets
In parallel with ongoing protests in Sudanese cities, the head of the Sudanese ruling council said the process of appointing a premier would be possible after talks with political forces.
Sudan's Khartoum witnessed Wednesday demonstrators setting barricades in most parts of the capital in protest of the military ruling of the country.
The African country has been suffering from political unrest and economic instability since the October 2021 coup that ended a civilian-military power-sharing agreement.
In an interview with a Saudi media outlet, the head of the ruling council, General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, noted that the process of appointing a premier would be possible after talks with political forces.
"When all the civilian forces sit together and come to a consensus between them, we are ready to sit and come to an understanding with them or to present them with whatever they need from the military side," he claimed.
Al-Burhan considered that the coup was necessary to end the political dispute in the country, while civilian politicians accuse the General of seeking to appoint his allies in official positions to strengthen his control.
The military leader believes an ongoing UN-African Union-led dialogue is the best option to solve the crisis.
On the other hand, Sudanese "Resistance committees" that have led the five-month protests reject dialogue with the ruling military.
Medics allied with the protesters confirmed that they had documented at least 89 civilian deaths since the beginning of the protests after the coup, while Al-Burhan claims several suspects, including members of the security forces, had been arrested.
