Sudan’s army plans to appoint a new prime minister soon

Sudan’s new military ruler, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, wants to appoint a new head of government within a week. The putschist leader of the Russian state agency RIA Novosti said on Friday that a technocrat would soon be nominated. According to this, there is no list of candidates yet. She added that the new prime minister will form the government after that. On Saturday, nationwide protests against the military coup are expected.

The army took power on Monday in the East African country of about 44 million people. Al-Burhan, who previously headed a transitional government with the now incompetent prime minister, Abdullah Hamdok, announced the dissolution of the civilian government and the imposition of a state of emergency.

Most internet networks and many phone lines are still blocked. According to eyewitnesses, a media vacuum has occurred since the seizure of power. It was reported that the Sudanese News Agency (SUNA), for the first time since its founding 60 years ago, no longer publishes any reports. Several trade unions organized a general strike.
