Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok resigns
Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned amid political deadlock and widespread protests following a military coup that derailed the country’s fragile transition to democracy.
Hamdok’s decision, announced in a televised address late on Sunday, came six weeks after he returned to his post in a deal with the coup leaders.
“I decided to give back the responsibility and announce my resignation as prime minister, and give a chance to another man or woman of this noble,” Hamdok said.
The announcement throws Sudan’s future deeper into uncertainty, three years after an uprising that led to the overthrow of longtime leader Omar al-Bashir.
Hamdok said on Sunday that his efforts to bridge the widening gap and settle disputes among the political forces have failed, Aljazeera has reported.
The prime minister also warned that the ongoing political deadlock could become a full-blown crisis and damage the country’s already battered economy.
