Sudanese Protesters ‘Call For A Million To March’

Sudanese protest leaders are calling for a million people to march on Thursday to demand the military council hand power over to a civilian administration, reports AFP news agency.

This has been the central demand of protesters since the army ousted President Omar al-Bashir.

A mass sit-in outside the military headquarters has been taking place since 6 April.

Five days later Mr Bashir was overthrown and replaced by a military council that promised it would relinquish power to civilians within two years.

The proposal was rejected by protesters who accuse the military of being “remnants” of the ousted long-time ruler.

Leaders of the protest movement, led by the Sudanese Professionals Association, have suspended transition talks and co-operation with the military because they doubt its sincerity to hand over power.
