The Sudanese military government of the African countries signed an agreement with the opposition organization “Facilities of Freedom and Change” (FFC) on Wednesday (17th). The two sides agreed to share power for three years, leading the country out of the shadow of dictatorship and officially marching toward democracy.
Sudanese negotiating parties reached consensus on transitional regime in early July. According to the content of the agreement, the local government will establish a democratic system in three years, during which the military and the opposition will share power in the power committee. The committee consists of 11 members, each with 5 representatives from the military and civilians, and the other with civilians recognized by both parties. The military will lead the committee in the first 21 months, and the remaining 18 months will be dominated by the opposition.
In addition, the two sides agreed to form an independent technocratic government and to investigate recent violent incidents in a transparent and independent manner.
Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, vice chairman of the Sudan Transitional Military Commission, praised the agreement as a new page for cooperation between the military and the FFC. FFC leader Omar al-Degair believes that this is an excellent agreement and hopes to bring stability to the country.
After signing the agreement, the two sides still need to draw up a constitutional statement to determine the duties of the power committee, which is expected to be formally signed on Friday (19th).
