CAIRO, AUGUST 17 - The formal signature of the constitutional declaration between the military junta and the civil opposition in Sudan is scheduled for today, which will lead the country towards a process of democratization and electoral freedom. The agreement was reached last August 3, after months of negotiations between the Transitional Military Council and the Freedom and Change Forces, following the popular protests that led to the ousting of President Omar al-Bashir in April, in power for 30 years, and clashes between security forces and protesters.
The agreement provides for a three-year transition period led by a sovereign council, whose appointment is scheduled for tomorrow, consisting of 5 soldiers and 6 civilians who will replace the military junta currently in power and must restore peace among the various armed groups present in the country.
