A spokesman for Sudan Transitional Military Council Shamsuddin Al-Kabbashi had earlier announced that the signing ceremony would be broadcast in popular squares and neighborhoods, while the forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change will hold popular celebrations across the country.
Meanwhile, in a speech broadcast on state television to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Sudanese Army, Chairman of the Transitional Military Council (TMC) Lieutenant General Abdul-Fattah Al-Burhan, said that the army has heroically maintained the country’s security and independence and was able to protect the democratic transformation and the goals of the glorious December Revolution.
On August 4, The TMC and the forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change agreed on a constitutional declaration to govern the transitional period following months of political instability.
The declaration stipulated that the presidency of the Transitional Sovereign Council shall be assumed by the military for the first period of 21 months. It shall be composed of five representatives of the military and five representatives of the civil community, in addition to one other member who will be appointed by a collective vote.
