Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has announced his resignation just weeks after he was reinstated in a controversial deal with the military.
The army seized power in October and put Mr. Hamdok under house arrest, but he was reinstated following a power-sharing deal with the coup’s leader.
Protesters rejected the deal, demanding an entirely civilian political rule.
In a televised address, Mr. Hamdok said Sudan was at a “dangerous turning point that threatens its whole survival”.
He said he had tried his best to stop the country from “sliding towards disaster”, but that “despite everything that has been done to reach a consensus… it has not happened“. END
