Sudan’s ruling generals and the pro-democracy movement are meeting to finalize a power-sharing deal.
Representatives from the military council and the Forces for Declaration of Freedom and Change (FDFC), which represents the protesters, are discussing in the capital of Khartoum on Tuesday a declaration included in an agreement reached earlier this month.
The deal includes a joint Sovereign Council that will rule for a little over three years while elections are organized. It also includes an FDFC-appointed cabinet.
It was meant to end a weeks-long political deadlock between the military and protesters since a Khartoum protest sit-in was broken up by security forces last month.
The meeting was expected to take place last week, but several delays were announced, raising suspicions that a final comprehensive deal could not be reached soon.
