Sudan.. demonstrations against the "framework agreement" between the military and civilians

Today, Thursday, the capital, Khartoum, and other Sudanese cities witnessed new demonstrations in rejection of the framework agreement signed between the military component of the authority and civilian forces.

According to the Anatolia correspondent and eyewitnesses, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in the capital, Khartoum, and the cities of Omdurman (west), Bahri (north), Madani (center), Port Sudan, Gedaref, and Kassala (east).

The demonstrations came at the invitation of the "Coordination Committees of the Resistance" (activists), political parties and professional bodies, in rejection of the framework agreement signed between the military component of the authority and civilian forces.

The "Resistance Committees" were formed in cities and villages after the outbreak of the protests on December 19, 2018, and they had the largest role in managing demonstrations in neighborhoods and cities until the army leadership ousted then-president Omar al-Bashir on April 11, 2019.

The Anatolia correspondent monitored the deployment of military vehicles in the vicinity of the presidential palace, and a security deployment in the center of the capital, Khartoum.

The security authorities closed the "Al-Mak Nimr" bridge linking Khartoum and the city of Bahri (north), to avoid demonstrators from reaching the vicinity of the presidential palace.

The demonstrators, carrying national flags, chanted "anti-military" slogans and the Forces for Freedom and Change (the former ruling coalition), calling for full civilian rule.

They raised banners reading "The civil struggle continues", "No to military rule", "A full civil state", "No to the political settlement", "No to the framework agreement", and "Yes to democratic civil rule".

Yesterday evening, Wednesday, the Forces for the Declaration of Freedom and Change announced the postponement of the signing of the final political agreement between the Sudanese parties, which was scheduled for Thursday, corresponding to the sixth of April, due to the joint talks between the military parties.

On March 29, the "Security and Military Reform" conference in Khartoum concluded, the last conference of the final stage of the political agreement, and the army leaders were absent from it due to disagreements over the integration of the Rapid Support Forces into the army, which later announced its commitment to the political process and its aspiration to complete the "merger processes" within it. .

The conference comes as a continuation of a political process that began on the eighth of last January between the signatories of the "Framework Agreement" on the fifth of December 2022, who are the ruling Military Sovereignty Council and civil forces, most notably the Freedom and Change Central Council, to reach an agreement that solves the political crisis in the country. .

The ongoing political process aims to resolve a crisis that has been prolonged since October 25, 2021, when the army commander, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, imposed exceptional measures, including the dissolution of the Sovereign Council and the Transitional Ministers and the declaration of a state of emergency.
