(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
A prominent Sudanese politician was released from jail on
Sunday, a day before the civilian coalition he belonged to was due
to sign an initial deal with the military to end a political
standoff triggered in October 2021 by a coup, trend reports citing reuters .
The framework deal would, according to a copy seen by Reuters,
involve a two-year, civilian-led political transition in which the
military's role would be limited to a security and defence council
headed by a prime minister.
But it sets no time for a final deal and leaves sensitive issues
including transitional justice and security sector reform for
further talks. It has already faced opposition from anti-military
protest groups and Islamist factions loyal to the regime of Omar
al-Bashir, who was ousted in 2019.
Leftist politician Wagdi Salih, who was freed at a police
station in the capital Khartoum, was at the forefront of an
anti-corruption committee tasked with dismantling Bashir's
Sudan has been without a prime minister since last year's coup,
which halted a power-sharing arrangement between the military and
the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) coalition that was meant to
lead to democratic elections. The FFC had called Salih's arrest in
October 'purely political'.
