The transition period in Sudan, which the military and civilian authorities agreed in 2019 after the overthrow of the Omar al-Bashir regime by the pro-American opposition, was interrupted on October 25 by the removal of the government of Abdullah Hamdok from power. The Commander-in-Chief of the country’s Armed Forces, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, declared a state of emergency, dissolved the Sovereign Council and suspended several articles of the draft Constitutional Declaration.
Hamdock, after his appointment to attract assistance, immediately connected his bureaucratic ties in international organizations. This help came from overseas and quickly enough turned into external management.
Prime Minister Hamdock allowed the Americans to rule the country, enrich themselves at the expense of the Sudanese, and agreed to reforms that ultimately drove citizens to poverty. Investigations by independent journalists have shed light on the clandestine activities of Western non-profit organizations in Sudan.
The Hamdok government began to rapidly lose public confidence. Local politicians noted the inability of the transitional pro-American authorities to independently deal with the rise in prices and other problems of the transition period without attracting outside help.
Hamdok’s failed policies have exacerbated long-standing conflicts in Sudan. The situation in the regions became destabilized, with sit-ins against the government on the streets. The military component of power was forced to intervene. According to the commander-in-chief of the Sudanese Armed Forces, political, regional and national fragmentation has prompted the army to act, as the transitional authorities have become a real threat to the country.
Now the Sudanese army, amid massive protests from a population driven to despair by a deep economic crisis, will form a new transitional government. The military will prepare Sudan for the scheduled elections in 2023. FAN writes about this.
