Will Sudan return to civilian rule?

A power-sharing deal between protesters and the army is signed and a council will temporarily run the country.

It was a deal months in the making.

Sudan‘s military and protest leaders have finalised an agreement that is intended to put the nation on the path to civilian rule. 

Just two months ago, dozens of demonstrators were killed in a military crackdown.

Now, the two sides will have to work together to shape new institutions for a new Sudan.

But who will guarantee this agreement gets implemented? And will Sudan’s army give up power?
