A.U Gives Sudan Military Junta 15 days to hand over power to the people

The African Union has given the Sudanese junta 15 days to hand power to civilians.

If the junta fails to hand power to civilians within 15 days, the AU will suspend “the participation of the Sudan in all AU’s activities until the restoration of constitutional order,” the body’s Peace and Security Council (PSC) said in a statement.

The protesters have remained in the streets, demanding a return to civilian rule from the military council that’s replaced Bashir.

After ten days, protesters are still in the capital demanding the military government hand over power to civilians.

The AU echoed the protesters’ demands, calling the military intervention a “coup d’Etat, which (the PSC) strongly condemns.”

The body, which has 55 member states, added that “a military-led transition would be completely contrary to the aspirations of the people of Sudan.”
