Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok dissolved his cabinet ahead of the planned reshuffle expected to be announced on Monday.
According to a Sunday decree, the ministers will remain in their positions to carry out work “in their ministries until the formation of the new government.”
Last week, Faisal Mohammed Saleh, the country’s information minister and the spokesman for Sudan’s transitional government, told Sputnik that the formation of the new cabinet was being postponed to a later date as the country’s political forces have yet to submit the lists of candidates.
Also last week, a senior member of the Forces of Freedom and Change (FFC) alliance, Al-Tijani Mustafa, told Sputnik that the political forces in Sudan had reached an agreement on the composition of the new transitional government.
According to the FFC member, Hamdok plans to keep the incumbent minister of irrigation, justice and religion affairs in the new cabinet.
The final composition of the new cabinet was initially expected to be announced on February 4.
In August 2019, the Sudanese military and civilian political forces agreed to a collaborative governance system following a coup and months of violent protests.
