  • What's at stake in next round of Sudan negotiations

According to the power-sharing agreement, a total of six civilians and five individuals from the military will share in ruling the country, with the military taking the reigns for a period of 21 months, followed by an 18-month civilian-led administration.

The military council and the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) alliance began talks, which stalled over the make-up of a sovereign council to steer the transition.

Action must be taken to address scores of rapes committed during a deadly crackdown by security forces in June, and ongoing sexual harassment on Sudan's streets today, they said.

A doctors committee linked to the protest movement said at a press conference late Thursday that 246 people had been killed since December 19 when protests first erupted, including 127 people on June 3 alone. The government has confirmed 61 deaths.

Months later, the army and protest leaders have agreed on the form of the country's governing institutions, but further talks will be needed to settle other contentious issues.

A power-sharing deal has now been cut with the ruling military council. Its most prominent member is his deputy General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, who leads the RSF and is widely known as Hemedti.

In April, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates announced a three-billion-dollar financial aid package for Khartoum.

The Sudanese Professionals' Association, which has spearheaded months of protests, tweeted that security forces had fired tear gas to disperse some rallies in the capital, Khartoum. It has no leader or strict hierarchy, though top members include Mohammad Naji al-Assam and Ahmed al-Rabie.

The two sides still need to sign a constitutional declaration that is meant to complete the political deal.

It stipulates establishment of a joint sovereignty council of 11 members, including five civilians and five military representatives, in addition to one civilian to be selected through consultation between the two sides.

The Communist Party said it and some other factions rejected the deal signed Wednesday because it didn't include the immediate handover of power to civilians and did not provide for an worldwide investigation of the violence.

"We are here to hold on to our demands since the military council is not responding to our demands".

Blanket immunity is strongly opposed by the protest movement, already concerned about how an independent investigation could be guaranteed with the military still in charge.

Women's rights groups across Africa called on the military council to end violations against women and urged the worldwide community ensure those responsible for the sexual violence were held to account.

Some FFC members rejected the deal, saying it does not fulfil protesters expectations.

"Upturning this arrangement is a formidable task".

The Revolutionary Front includes rebel groups from Darfur as well as Blue Nile and South Kordofan states. He and fellow business owners fear that continued political uncertainty will lead to the collapse of his country's economy. Of a population of 44 million, more than 5 million people are in need of assistance and almost 2 million are displaced, according to the United Nations.

Sudan is in a volatile region of north-east Africa. But tensions remain high, even as a peace agreement is signed. The RSF is contributing troops to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

European powers and Egypt are concerned about potential flows of migrants from Sudan, a transit route to the Mediterranean.
