Thousands of people continued to protest on Friday outside army headquarters in capital Khartoum to demand that Sudan’s ruling Military Transitional Council (MTC) hand over power to a civilian authority, Anadolu Agency reports.
For the fourth consecutive week, demonstrators performed Friday prayers in Khartoum’s Al-Itisam Square, where preachers hailed the “revolution” and reiterated calls for “freedom, peace and justice”.
On April 11, the Sudanese army announced the “removal” of President Omar al-Bashir following months of popular protests against his 30-year rule.
The MTC is now overseeing a two-year post-Bashir “transitional period” during which it has pledged to hold free presidential elections.
Demonstrators, however, have remained on the streets to demand that the MTC hand over power — at the earliest possible date — to an elected civilian authority.
