Sudan’s ousted prime minister Abdalla Hamdok has been reinstated, after signing a new power-sharing agreement with the military leader who deposed him in a coup.

General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan signed the deal on Sunday with Hamdok, which sees the release of all political prisoners detained during the coup (Al Jazeera). 

The deal also stipulates that a 2019 constitutional declaration be the basis for a political transition.

“We should all come together to let the people decide who will take and hold the reins of power,” Hamdok said.

Dozens of protesters have been killed in mass demonstrations since the coup last month.

The Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC) civilian coalition dismissed the new deal, calling for protests to continue and for the military leaders responsible for the coup to face justice.
