Sudan announces agreement on constitutional draft

According to Reuters, Sudan’s military council and the main opposition coalition have reached an agreement to usher in a new period of transitional government.

African Union envoy to Sudan Mohamed Hassan Labbat told a news conference in the early hours of Saturday that the Transitional Military Council and the Sudanese opposition had agreed on a constitutional document that would pave the way for the formation of a transitional government.

"I have announced to the Sudanese, international and African public opinion that the two delegations have fully agreed on the constitutional draft," Labbat told a press conference in Khartoum.

According to "Reuters" the document also showed that the Sudanese General Intelligence Service will be under the supervision of the sovereign council and the Council of Ministers.

The agreement on the constitutional document completes the July 17 agreement between the military council and the forces of freedom and change on a "political declaration" to form a joint military-military council that would establish a transitional administration leading the country for a 39-month phase.

Following the announcement of a full agreement on the constitutional document, hundreds of Sudanese went to Khartoum to express their great joy at the long-awaited agreement, which is expected to be the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the country after the fall of the former regime, according to Sky News.
