Sudan Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok resigns after Coup and mass protests

The Sudanese Prime Minister Abdulla Hamdok resigns after a coup which dethroned him and later installed him which caused mass protests in Sudan which later mad the Prime Minister to resign. On October the 24th Prime Minister Abdulla Hamdok was arrested by the military government of Sudan the arrest caused mass protests in Sudan against the Military government of the country which is led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan who is the command-in-chief of the armed forces of the country. Alongside the Prime Minister ministers were also arrested at the Prime minister’s home at nighttime.

In a televised address, the Prime Minister said Sudan was at a “dangerous turning point that threatens its whole survival”. And “sliding towards disaster”, but that “despite everything that has been done to reach a consensus… it has not happened”.

“I decided to give back the responsibility and announce my resignation as prime minister and give a chance to another man or woman of this noble country to… help it pass through what’s left of the transitional period to a civilian democratic country.”

In November when Abdalla Hamdok was reinstated as Prime Minister certain powers were given to the civilian government, but the public didn’t trust the military and protested which caused the Prime minister to be under pressure and caused his resignation.

The Coup leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan who is the head of state of Sudan has defended last October’s coup, saying the army had acted to prevent a civil war that was threatening to erupt. He says Sudan is still committed to the transition to civilian rule, with elections planned for July 2023.
