During a meeting, the Transitional Period Partners Council proposed relieving the state governors and approving the formation of the Transitional Legislative Council.
“The Council of Partners proposed that all state governors be relieved on August 1 and new governors be appointed on August 5,” Councilmember Haider Alsafi told reporters following the meeting. “The Council appointed a committee to finalize the Transitional Legislative Council’s creation and make the necessary arrangements for its inaugural session on August 17th,” he continued.
The transitional partners’ council is chaired by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the Head of the Sovereign Council, and comprises the Prime Minister as well as leaders of the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) and the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF).
The signing of the Constitutional Document that rules the transitional phase is commemorated on August 17th for the second anniversary. In this context, The Transitional Legislative Council will consist of 300 lawmakers, with 165 members picked by the FFC factions, 75 seats allotted to the SRF factions, and 60 others chosen in collaboration with the Sovereign Council’s military component.
However, The FFC recently stated that the military component is delaying the formation of the parliament because they are still waiting for a meeting to discuss the 60 seats that should be allocated to holdout groups and political forces that supported the revolution but were not part of the ruling coalition.
Since the transitional government formed in Sudan in August 2019, a legislative assembly has still not been formed. The formation of a legislative assembly is important for the entry into force of agreements in both domestic and foreign policy.
