Sudan’s protest leaders said Monday that agreement has been reached with the country’s military rulers on the overall transitional authority to run the country, including a “sovereign council”.

“At today’s meeting we agreed on the structure of the authorities and their powers,” Taha Osman, a spokesman for the protest movement, told AFP.

“The authorities are as follows — the sovereign council, the cabinet and the legislative body.

“Tomorrow the talks will continue to discuss the period of transition and the composition of the authorities.”

Sudan’s army rulers and protest leaders resumed crucial talks Monday over handing power to a civilian administration after a deadlock in negotiations.

The army generals and protesters are at loggerheads over who will sit on a new ruling body that would replace the existing military council.

The generals have proposed that the new council be military led, while the protest leaders want a majority civilian body.

Late last month, the alliance — which brings together protest organisers, opposition parties and rebel groups — handed the generals its proposals for a civilian-led transitional government.
