Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok issued a decision today, Sunday, to appoint the leader of the “Sudan Liberation Movement”, Minni Arko Minawi, as governor of the Darfur region, west of the country.
According to the text of the decision; The appointment comes in accordance with the provisions of the constitutional document of 2019, and based on the Juba Peace Agreement in Sudan between the transitional government and the parties to the peace process.
On October 3, the Juba agreement was signed between the Sudanese government and representatives of armed movements within the “Revolutionary Front” coalition, while the “Popular Movement” and the “Sudan Liberation” led by Abdel Wahid Nour, who are fighting in Darfur, did not participate.
The Juba Agreement approved the return of the federal system of government in the country, which is based on 8 regions, instead of 18 states.
Bringing peace to Sudan is one of the most prominent files on the table of Hamdok’s government, which is the first government since the army leadership – in April 2019 – removed Omar al-Bashir from the presidency, under pressure from popular protests against his rule.
