Al-Burhan hints at his intention to appoint a new prime minister As  pro-democracy announces a repeat of its response” no negotiations, no bargaining, no partnership in a massive million-man march today.

The coordination of the resistance committees of the city of Khartoum announced a million-man opposition to military rule and demand civil rule.

“We would like to inform you that on the day all the resistance committees in Khartoum will come out on January 12th to complete what we started earlier,” the committees said in a statement.

“We and you (the revolution against dictatorships, the word of truth, and the streets) used us as they used to be, and because we and you are committed to the road of our revolution and the legitimacy of our country’s civil leadership, we will continue to walk our millions one by one until we reach our future, namely, the state of freedom, peace and democratic civil justice, which represents our will without compromising our demands that “no negotiation, no bargaining, no partnership.”

“This million-man demonstration will not be a waste of time and January will not be, we will continue to fight with you until we achieve what all the martyrs died for,” the statement continued.

Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said Tuesday that the transitional government is keen to complete the institutions of the transitional period and appoint a civilian prime minister.

The council said in a statement that al-Burhan’s remarks came during a meeting with South Sudanese President Costello Garang Ring’s envoy, who was briefed on the overall political situation in the country.

The army toppled the civilian government in late October, announced the dissolution of the Transitional Sovereignty Council and arrested a number of ministers and officials, before Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok was later released.”

The army and Hamdok later reached a political agreement to form a new government, and armed forces commander Abdel Fattah al-Burhan pledged to step down as soon as power was handed over to the elected bodies. Hamdok announced on January 2nd that he had officially resigned from his post, in the event of protests against the political agreement between him and Sudanese Sovereignty Council President Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

The Sudanese envoy also stressed that Khartoum “is capable of overcoming current issues and challenges”.
