Sudan coup leader appoints new Governing council

Sudan coup leader appoints new Governing council

Sudan’s top military commander appeared to tighten his grip on power on November 11, 2021, as he appointed a new governing council that he will lead, two weeks after the military overthrew the civilian-led government.

The move by General Abdel-Fattah Burhan contradicts repeated promises from the military that they will hand over power to civilian authorities after seizing it in an October 25, 2021 coup.

The United Nations said the development is “very concerning.” The internet also remains cut, despite a court order on Tuesday to restore it.

On October 25, 2021 the Sudanese army dissolved the power-sharing transitional government and detained civilian Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and his cabinet. 

The coup took place as Sudan was progressing along a democratic path following the ouster of longstanding leader, President Omar al-Bashir, in April 2019.
