If a political agreement signed between Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and the military last week is not implemented or fails to receive backing from political factions, the Prime Minister will quit, a source close to him said on Wednesday.
Hamdok was released from house arrest and restored to his position under the deal reached on November 21, four weeks after he was removed in a coup.
The agarrested allows Hamdok appoint a new technocratic cabinet, and calls for the release of political detainees and investigations into crackdowns on protests in which medics say 43 people died.
Hamdok has said he signed the agreement to stop bloodshed and preserve much-needed international financial support.
The military takeover ended a 2019 power-sharing agreement between the military and political groups involved in toppling former leader Omar al-Bashir.
Opponents say the post-coup agreement favours the military by leaving the army chief in charge of a body, the Sovereign Council, that was meant to pass to civilian control.
The resistance committees have organised further protests planned for December on key anniversaries from the 2018 start of protests against Bashir.
The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors said on Wednesday 98 people had been injured the previous day, mainly from tear gas canisters and stun grenades.
State television quoted police as saying there were some cases of choking from tear gas and injuries due to crowding, and that 44 people had been arrested.
