Addressing a political rally on Sudan, Abdul Aziz has accused the military Council or refusing to hand over the power to the civilians.

“Up from today we are against the military regime, we didn’t recognize this regime and we would face them as we consider them as a military coup that represents the old regime” he stressed.
