The office of the ousted Sudanese PM Abdalla Hamdok, announced his release and lifting of the house arrest that was imposed on him, on Sunday.
“The Sudanese militants lifted restrictions on Hamdok’s movements and withdrew the security forces that were stationed outside his house today, Sunday.” The office reported in a statement to Reuters.
Hamdok’s release comes before a new political announcement that Sudan is expected to witness today, returning Abdalla Hamdok to the prime ministership and drawing a road map to cross the current crisis.
The expected announcement is the result of the first decisive official meeting, which included the Chairman of the Sovereignty Council, Commander-in-Chief of the Army, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and the ousted PM (Prime Minister), Abdalla Hamdouk, which lasted about 4 hours from ten in the evening until two in the morning local time.
A private source told “Al-Ain News” that Hamdok is currently on his way to the presidential palace to attend the announcement of the political agreement.
There were reports conflicting about Hamdok’s attendance in the announcement of the agreement reached between the parties to the crisis in the country, according to which he would return to his position.
There were conflicting statements of two sources close to the file of “Al-Ain News”, as the first went to attend the announcement while the second denied this, saying only that he participated in the agreement, but he will not attend his announcement.
The two sources stated that the signing of the political agreement in Sudan will take place today, Sunday.
Under the agreement concluded between the parties to the Sudanese crisis, Hamdok will return to the position of PM while all detainees will be released.
Political figures and components participating in the negotiations taking place in Sudan to get out of the crisis confirmed that it had been agreed between the head of the Sovereign Council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and the ousted PM, Abdullah Hamdouk, on the latter’s return to his position.
