Sudan lifts state of emergency countrywide

Sudan’s Transitional Sovereign Council Chairman, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan has issued a decree lifting the state of emergency in all parts of the country.

The order was made to “prepare the atmosphere for a fruitful dialogue that achieves stability for the transitional period,” the Sovereign Council said on Sunday in a statement.

Sudan has been suffering a political crisis after Al-Burhan, who is also the General Commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces, declared a state of emergency on October 25, 2021, and dissolved the Sovereign Council and the government, Xinhua news agency reported.

Since then, the Sudanese capital of Khartoum and other cities have been witnessing continued protests demanding a return to civilian rule.
