Sudan’s deposed Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said on Monday the reinstatement of his government, dissolved in a military coup, could pave the way to a solution in the country, the information ministry said, as international mediation progressed to end the political crisis.
Hamdok spoke during a meeting at his home, where he is under effective house arrest, with the ambassadors of the United States, Britain and Norway, the ministry, which remains loyal to the prime minister, said.
On October 25, Sudan’s top General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan dissolved the cabinet as well as the ruling joint military-civilian Sovereign Council, which had been heading Sudan’s transition towards full civilian rule following the 2019 overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir.
The overthrown prime minister, an international economist, “insisted on the legitimacy of his government and transitional institutions”, the information ministry said on its Facebook page.
He added that “the release of the cabinet ministers and the full reinstatement of the government could pave the way to a solution”, and demanded that the situation in Sudan return to what it was before the coup, refusing to negotiate with the military rulers.
