Sudan PM Abdalla Hamdok resigns amid political deadlock

Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned amid political deadlock and widespread protests following a military coup that derailed the country’s fragile transition to democracy.
Hamdok’s decision, announced in a televised address late on Sunday, comes six weeks after he returned to his post in a deal with the coup leaders he argued could save Sudan’s political transition.
But the pro-democracy movement rejected that agreement, and Hamdok failed to name a new government as thousands of people continued to protest against the military’s power grab.
In his resignation speech, Hamdok said a roundtable discussion is needed to agree on a new “national charter” and to “draw a roadmap” to complete Sudan’s transition to democracy.
