Sudan protesters call for military coup as political crisis deepens
On Saturday, thousands of protestors gathered in Khartoum, Sudan, to protest the current political crisis. The country is currently suffering from the biggest display of political instability in its two-year transition. The demonstrators called for the military to seize power. Since the topping of President Omar al-Bashir’s administration in 2019, military and civilian groups have been sharing power. After a failed coup in September linked to forces loyal to Bashir, military leaders have been demanding reforms to the coalition and the replacement of the cabinet. Civilian leaders have accused military forces of aiming for a power grab, however, the protests last weekend were a display of support for the military.
