Will civilian-military partnership in Sudan fall apart?

Cracks are showing between civilian and military players in Sudan’s transitional government.

A split is widening between Sudan’s military and civilian leaders.

An attempted coup last month has worsened tension between the two sides.

The coup attempt was blamed on soldiers loyal to former President Omar al-Bashir.

Pro-democracy rallies have been held in the capital Khartoum by supporters of the civilian leadership.

Sudan’s military accuses politicians of failing to govern effectively.

So, where does it all leave the military-civilian partnership?
