Member of Sudanese Military Council: We will not accept civilian majority in Interim Council

Salah Abdul Khaliq, a member of Sudan's Military Council, told the British BBC that the army would not accept a civilian majority in an interim power-sharing council.

The Council could accept equal representation of civilians and military personnel, he added.

The Forces of Freedom and Change leading the protests provided a "constitutional document" of the Transitional Military Council, which said it constitutes an integrated vision on the powers and functions of institutions during the transitional period.

The main provisions of the document include the suspension of the 2005 transitional constitution, the establishment of a transitional period of four years, the formation of a joint sovereign council of civilians and the military council to administer the country, and the formation of a Transitional Legislative Council of 120-150 members.
