In addition, the sources indicated that an urgent meeting of the new Sovereign Council will be held this afternoon to agree on the Prime Minister.
October 25 procedures
It is noteworthy that the army chief had announced on October 25 (2021), the dissolution of the government and the Transitional Council, and the imposition of a state of emergency in the country, until the formation of a new government, which he pledged at the time to consist of civilians and qualified personnel.
The armed forces also launched a campaign of arrests that included a number of politicians and government officials, as well as leaders in coordination and civil parties.
These steps led to international criticism, and regional and international efforts to return the country to the “democratic path” and the transitional period that has been governed since 2019 with the participation of the civilian and military components, while Hamdok has adhered, since the first day of his placement under house arrest, to the release of all political detainees.
