Al-Burhan: ‘I will have no political role’ after power handover

Sudan’s army chief discusses the country’s ongoing political crisis.

Following weeks of escalating tensions between Sudan’s military and civilian leaders, the country faces yet another political crisis.

The army, led by General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, took control of the government on October 25.

As tens of thousands of pro-democracy protesters took to the streets, many in the international community condemned the military’s power grab.

Al-Burhan promised to protect the road to democracy in Sudan, but what guarantees are there that he will fulfil his promise?

He has also announced elections in 2023, will he put forward his name as a presidential candidate?
