Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, Announces Resignation

Following pro-democracy rallies that left two people dead, Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, has announced his resignation from the country’s military-controlled administration. reports

Hamdok’s resignation comes less than two months after he was restored as Prime Minister in a power-sharing arrangement with Sudan’s military following the October 25th coup that stalled the country’s democratic transition.

His sudden resignation casts doubt on the transition, which was set to be completed by 2024, and comes amid a strong security crackdown on protestors who opposed not only the takeover but also the subsequent arrangement that reinstated Mr Hamdok.

Recall that in November 2020, Mr Hamdok reached an agreement with Sudan’s current military leader, General Adbel Fattah al Burhan, to be returned as the country’s Prime Minister.

In a televised statement on Sunday, Mr. Hamdok announced his resignation and called for a roundtable meeting to draft a new deal for Sudan’s democratic transition.

Hamdok warned that the country’s prolonged political impasse since the military takeover might devolve into a full-fledged catastrophe, wreaking havoc on the country’s already-struggling economy.

“I tried as much as I possibly could to prevent our country from sliding into a catastrophe,” he said.

“Now, our nation is going through a dangerous turning point that could threaten its survival unless it is urgently rectified.”
