The Sudan Crisis Explained. Protesters ask for a Military Coup

The transitional government of Sudan is under fire by protesters and the uprising is gaining even more intensity.  Opponents took to the streets of Khartoum on Saturday and demanded that the army take control of the government.

Sudan has maintained both a civilian government as well as military government since the toppling of President Omar al-Bashir in 2019.  Things reached a fever pitch as it appears supporters of Omar al-Bashir attempted a coup in September.

Afterwards military leaders have urged for a change to the FFC (Freedom and Change Commission). This civilian organization is responsible for monitoring the transitional government and making sure everything is in place.  However, the Civilian organization claims that demands from the military are an attempt to take control of the Government.

As a result , protestors have gone to the streets in support of the Army to get the military to take over the gorvernment.  Sudan’s civilian Prime Minister, Abdallah Hamdok unveiled a plan to reduce tension in the government’s most tense moments in the last 2 years of transition.
