Sudan: Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok resigns after mass protests

PRIME MINISTER, Abdalla Hamdok, of Sudan has resigned after another day of mass protests rocked the capital Khartoum.

Thousands marched against a recent deal he had done to share power with the army, who staged a coup in October.

Chanting “power to the people”, protesters called for a return to full civilian rule.

Mr Hamdok’s decision to quit leaves the army in full control.

Civilian and military leaders had made an uneasy power-sharing agreement after the army staged a coup on 25 October and initially placed Prime Minister Hamdok under house arrest.

Under the agreement reached with Mr Hamdok in November, the reinstated prime minister was supposed to lead a cabinet of technocrats until elections were held.
