The Sudanese military Council, which came to power after a military coup last month, said it had reached an agreement with the opposition on a three-year transition period. According to the TV channel “Sky News Arabia”, the parties reached a consensus on most of the controversial issues.
“The Military Council and the opposition intend to announce the details of the final agreement within 24 hours,” the news release of the al-Hadat TV channel says.
The military Council reportedly said that the parties to the talks would form a legislative Council of 300 members. The opposition forces will receive 67 percent of the seats in the Legislative Council for the Declaration of freedom and change.
First, of the week, the Military Council and the opposition agreed on the structure of the transitional bodies.
A military coup took place in Sudan on 11 April after four months of anti-government protests. President Omar Bashir, who had been in power for 30 years, was overthrown and then imprisoned. The Military Council came to power and promised to hold new elections within the first two years.
