Sudan PM Abdalla Hamdok disbands interim government
Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok released a decision on Sunday to disband the government, the ministerial council said in a statement.
“In accordance with the provisions of the constitutional document for the transitional period, the prime minister issued a decision today to relieve the ministers and ministers of state in the government of the transitional period from their posts and end the assignment of the acting ministers,” the statement said.
The relieved ministers will remain in their ministries as caretaker ministers until the new government is formed, according to the decision.
The Council of Transitional Period Partners in Sudan had decided earlier on Sunday to announce the new government on Monday.
On 3 October 2020, the peace agreement signed by the Sudanese government and armed groups in Juba, South Sudan, provided for the inclusion of the signatory groups in the institutions of the transitional period, including the sovereign council, the cabinet and the legislative council.
