Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said on Sunday he was resigning, less than two months after being reinstated as part of a political agreement with the military.

Iran PressAfrica: In a televised speech late on Sunday, Hamdok, who signed a political agreement with the military in November, said a roundtable discussion is needed to reach a new deal.

Hamdok, a former United Nations official seen as the civilian face of Sudan’s transitional government, was reinstated in November amid international pressure in a deal that called for an independent technocratic cabinet under military oversight led by him.

Hamdok’s resignation came after Sudanese security forces violently dispersed the pro-democracy protesters against the October 25 military coup, killing at least two people, a medical group said.

 On November 21, 2021, top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Abdalla Hamdok signed a political agreement for Hamdok's return to power; like the military coup, the deal faced widespread opposition.

Sudanese people take to the streets every week in Khartoum and other cities despite army crackdown, insisting that their demands be met and continue to demonstrate until the military is ousted.
