Sudanese television announced, on Sunday, the arrival of the ousted Prime Minister, Abdullah Hamdok, to the presidential palace, in light of the news of an agreement with the army to return to the presidency of the government.

This comes in conjunction with the Ministry of Information sending invitations to media professionals; To attend the signing of a political agreement at the presidential palace between the military component and Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok at 12:30 PM., according to The Eastern Herald correspondent.

Sudanese television broadcast scenes from a hall that was prepared for the signing of the agreement, and a background titled “The Ceremony of Signing the Political Agreement” appears.

Earlier on Sunday, a military source revealed to The Eastern Herald that Hamdok’s house arrest had been lifted, indicating that he had arrived at his residence east of Khartoum.

And local media reported earlier on Sunday that the military component of the Sovereignty Council had reached an agreement with Hamdok, including his return to the premiership again, and the release of all political detainees.

According to the sources, the agreement included the formation of Hamdok’s government in consultation with political forces, except for the National Congress Party (formerly ruling under President Omar al-Bashir).

Since last October 25, Sudan has been experiencing a severe crisis, as the army chief, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, declared a state of emergency, dissolved the Sovereignty Councils and the transitional ministers, and dismissed the governors, after the arrest of party leaders, ministers, and officials, in exchange for continuous protests rejecting these measures as a “military coup.”

In return for accusing him of carrying out a military coup, Al-Burhan says that the army is committed to completing the democratic transition process and that it took measures on October 25 to protect the country from “a real danger,” accusing political forces of “inciting chaos.”
