Hamdok resigns less than two months after he signed a political agreement with the military.
Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned, less than two months after he signed a political agreement with the military.
Hamdok late on Sunday said a roundtable discussion is needed to come to a new agreement.
Hamdok, a former United Nations official seen as the civilian face of Sudan’s transitional government, was reinstated in November amid international pressure in a deal that called for an independent technocratic Cabinet under military oversight led by him.
That deal, however, was rejected by the pro-democracy movement, which insists that power be handed over to a fully civilian government tasked with leading the transition.
