Sudan forms sovereign council to lead transition: Spokesman   

Published: Updated:

Sudan’s generals and opposition alliance on Tuesday formed a sovereign council that will head the country during its three-year transition to civilian rule, a spokesman said.

The sovereign council will be led by Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who is the head of the Transitional Military Council (TMC).

The line-up of the 11-member council was announced by a spokesman for the TMC, which had taken charge after former President Omar al-Bashir was forced from power in April.
