Sudan’s Transitional Military Council (TMC) and the opposition – Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC) have reached an agreement on Wednesday for a power-sharing after weeks of negotiations, according to Ethiopian state media report.
The agreement is on “Political Declaration for the transitional period,” as reported by Sudan Tribune, and it has three institutions – “sovereign council, government, and legislative council.”
Investigation of crimes committed against civilians following the fall of President Omar Hassan Al-Bashir in April of this year is part of the agreement
Ethiopia and the African Union were involved in the initiation of the talk and in the mediation effort.
However, there are areas in which the two sides have not reached an agreement including in the area of legislative Council composition.
On the other hand, the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) has rejected the agreement between TMC and Forces of Freedom and Change. It said that the process and the way the negotiation was approached was “flawed and unacceptable and would complicate the national process,” as reported by the Sudan Tribune.
