Sudan coup: Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok resigns 6 weeks after reinstatement

Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned just six weeks after his reinstatement by the military regime. He tendered in his resignation in a televised address to the citizens on Sunday January 2nd, 2022.

Recall that, Sudan’s top general, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan earlier dissolved the country’s sovereign council and followed up with the arrest of the top politicians including Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.

The Prime Minister was later reinstated by the General. However, Sudanese have been hitting the streets in protest against both the coup and the reinstatement deal with the Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok of which they suspect foul play.

Following the massive protests, the prime minister have taken a bow out of his position, stating that, he has tried his best and would like to hand over to another person to continue.

“I have decided to return your trust to you and announce my resignation from the position of Prime Minister to make way for another one of the sons of this generous country to complete the leadership of the dear homeland and pass through it during the remaining life of the transition towards the reviving civil, democratic state,” Hamdok said.
