KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) – Sudan’s protest movement says it has accepted an Ethiopian roadmap for civilian-led transitional government, after a months-long standoff with the country’s military rulers.
Ahmed Rabie, a spokesman for the Sudanese Professionals’ Association, told The Associated Press on Sunday that the Ethiopian proposal included a leadership council with eight civilian and seven military members, with a rotating chairmanship.
The ruling military council did not immediately say whether it would also agree.
Rabie added the roadmap would restore all previous deals with the military. These include a three-year transition period, a protester-appointed Cabinet and a protester-majority legislative body.
Rabie says the protest leaders will also discuss with the Ethiopian envoy, Mahmoud Dirir, establishing an “independent” investigation into the military’s crackdown against a protest sit-in earlier this month that killed dozens.
