The head of Sudan's Transitional Military Council, Abdul Fattah al-Burhan, will meet with a number of opposition forces on Saturday, less than 24 hours after his inauguration as a successor to Awad bin Auf, the news agency "Arabiya Sky News" said.
The agency explained that al-Burhan will meet with leaders of the nation's national and communist parties and the Sudanese, Nasserite and Baath Congress, adding that these talks aimed to discuss "the issue of forming the next government."
This comes at a time when the gathering of Sudanese professionals announced today that the sit-in in front of the headquarters of the army forces in the capital Khartoum would not be resolved only by the departure of all aspects of the current regime, and the handover of power to a civilian government.
"The sit-in will not stop until the regime is completely overthrown, with all its universal components and corrupt symbols," said the group that has been leading protests in the country for more than four months.
The chair of the Transitional Military Council in Sudan, Awad bin Auf, announced on Friday evening that he abdicated his position to the Colonel General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan to be the second president of the Council after the ousted of the president Omar al-Bashir.
