Last week, the Sudanese government and the leaders of the Revolutionary Front (armed movements) in Juba signed a peace agreement, with initials, that included 8 protocols, most notably power-sharing, wealth distribution, and transitional justice.
Bringing peace to Sudan is one of the most prominent files on the table of Abdullah Hamdok‘s government, which is the first government since the army leadership removed Omar al-Bashir from the presidency in April 2019, under pressure from popular protests against his rule.
On August 21, 2019, a transitional period began in Sudan that will last for 39 months, ending with elections in late 2022, during which power is shared by the army and the coalition of the Forces of Freedom and Change, the leader of the popular protests.
