An Agreement has reportedly been made between Sudanese military leaders and the opposition alliance for a three-year transition period to civilian administration.
According to BBC, the Transitional Military Council (TMC) said the party would have two-thirds of the seats on a legislative council.
Sudan has been governed by the military council since last month’s ousting of President Omar al-Bashir.
Protests that led to his overthrow have continued amid demands for the full civilian government.
At least five protesters and a member of the security forces died in clashes in the capital, Khartoum on Monday before the announcement was made.
At a joint news conference, Lt Gen Yasser al-Atta, a member of the military council said a final agreement on power-sharing would be signed with the opposition alliance
“We vow to our people that the agreement will be completed fully within 24 hours in a way that meets the people’s aspirations,” he said.
