The resignation of Prime Minister Hamdok and the growing public outrage have deepened Sudan’s uncertainty.

After Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok (Abdalla Hamdok) resigned, Sudan once again plunged into political turmoil.

Less than two months after he resumed his duties under an agreement with the military.

Senior military leader General Abdul Fatah Burhan called for the establishment of an emergency caretaker government and new measures to respond to the demonstrations.

Democracy groups said the army should stay away from the government, and they are planning more protests.

Since the dismissal of long-time leader Omar al-Bashir in 2019, the political deadlock between the parties has prevented the country from transitioning from dictatorship to democracy.

Will the new power-sharing agreement be the way out?
