Two sources close to Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said he told a group of national political and intellectual figures that he intends to resign in the coming hours.
Hamdok who was reinstated on November 21 following a coup a month earlier said he would only remain in office if he had political support and if the agreement was enforced.
In a statement over the weekend, Hamdok said Sudan was inching towards “the abyss,” blaming political intransigence and lack of consensus on a new political agreement.
The agreement has faced widespread criticism from parties and the general public. The military has been called on to release political detainees, protect freedom of expression and allow Hamdok to independently appoint a new cabinet.
The group Hamdok spoke to on Tuesday called on him to stay in his position but he insisted he would leave, the sources added.
