Three of the most controversial figures in Sudan’s overall transition military council have offered their departures – one of the most important requirements of the protest movement.
The three generals are seen as strong Islamists and allies of deposed President Omar al-Bashir
It follows talks between the military council and the protest leaders.
A “million strong march for civilian rule” has been called later to maintain the pressure for democratic reform.
Thousands of protesters have arrived in capital, Khartoum, by train from various cities to attend the event.
“What we hope to do today is to continue our peaceful resistance,” says Dr. Sara Abdelgalil, from the Sudanese professional association, the main group behind the protests.
She told the BBC: “Regime members and NCP [the ousted president’s party] are trying to prove legitimate to continue to govern the transition period.”
Protestants have been called
At a press conference on Wednesday, military spokesman Lt-Gen Shamseddine Kabbashi said that the two sides had agreed on most of the requirements and that they decided to set up a joint committee to bridge their differences .
The three generals going down are Omar Zain al-Abideen, Jalal al-Deen al-Sheikh and Al-Tayeb Babakr Ali Fadeel.
