August 17th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – Sudanese army which has beem ruling the country since the ouster of long-time leader Omar al-Bashir has signed a deal with protest leaders this afternoon to establish a pro-democracy transition.

The power-sharing deal establishes a civilian-led transitional government for Sudan and govern for a period three years.

Above the government,  a sovereignty council led by the military for the first 18 months and by a civilian at the end of that period for another 18 months.

The signing of the final agreement is expected to usher in a stint of stability in Sudan that has for months been grappling with an economic crisis.

The Transitional Military Council (TMC) has ruled Sudan since April, when the military ousted Bashir following months of protests against his rule during which dozens of demonstrators were killed.

The council and the main opposition alliance, known as the Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC), have been negotiating the power-sharing deal for months.
