Khartoum (IP) – The people of Sudan continue to protest in various cities against the military's continued presence in power and demand the army's withdrawal from the political arena.

Iran PressAfrica: Following the military coup in Sudan, people have been on the streets since October 2021, and despite the violent treatment of the protesters by the Sudanese military, people insist on standing up, resisting, and taking to the streets until their demands are met.

While Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, chairman of Sudan's governing council, has announced that the military is committed to holding elections in mid-2023, the Sudanese people are urging an immediate end to the military presence in power to form a democratic government.

Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has claimed that with the elections in Sudan, the army would leave the political scene and hand over power to civilians.
