Demonstration in the streets of Khartoum after the resignation of the Prime Minister

AA / Khartoum, Sudan / Mohammed Amin

Thousands of people took to the streets of the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and other cities across the country on Tuesday to demand a fully civilian government.

Protesters held banners condemning the military and carried pictures of those killed in protests against the military takeover on October 25, according to an Anadolu Agency correspondent.

Police used tear gas canisters to disperse protesters, who attempted to reach the presidential palace in Khartoum, eyewitnesses said.

“Police and security forces have used tear gas extensively against us, but we will continue to demonstrate,” Khartoum protester Sanaa Ali said. “They will not succeed in intimidating us,” she added.

Tuesday’s protests follow the resignation of transitional prime minister Abdallah Hamdok after two years in power.

The latter admitted, in a televised address, that collaboration between the military and civilians had not made it possible to ensure the transition and lay the foundations for a civilian regime and the establishment of democracy.
