October 6, 2021 (KHARTOUM) – Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok and the leadership of the ruling coalition in Sudan discussed the dispute with the military component and the ongoing crisis in eastern Sudan.

“The Prime Minister briefed members of the Central Leadership Council of the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) on the outcome of his meetings with the Chairman of the Sovereign Council and members of the military component yesterday and today on these issues”.

“Also, he briefed them on the meeting of the ministerial committee, formed by the Council of Ministers headed by Hamdok, with the President of the Sovereign Council in order to discuss the issue of eastern Sudan, considering the disruption of state institutions (under the power-sharing between the two components)”.

It was purported that Hamdok failed to reach tangible results in meetings with al-Burhan and the military component.

The FFC leaders confirmed to Hamdok their commitment to the partnership in accordance with the constitutional document.
