Hamdok resigned less than two months after signing a political agreement with the military.
Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned, less than two months after signing a political agreement with the military.
Hamdok said late on Sunday that a roundtable discussion was needed to reach 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 an agreement calling for an independent technocratic cabinet led by him under military supervision. .
However, that agreement was rejected by the pro-democracy movement, which insisted that power be transferred to a fully civilian government tasked with leading the transition.
