Sudan crisis: Military and opposition agree three-year transition

Sudan’s military leaders have announced an agreement with the opposition alliance for a three-year transition period to a civilian administration

BBC reports that The Transitional Military Council (TMC) said the alliance would have two-thirds of the seats on a legislative council

However, the two sides are yet to agree on a sovereign council – the top tier of power, where both want a majority

Sudan has been ruled by the military council since last month’s toppling of President Omar al-Bashir

Protests that led to his downfall have continued, with a huge sit-in outside the military headquarters to demand full civilian government

Hours before the latest deal was announced, at least five protesters and a member of the security forces died in clashes in the capital, Khartoum.
