The new Sudanese government will be comprised of civilians, the head of the military council’s political committee said on Friday, according to Reuters.


The statement came a day after President Omar al-Bashir was deposed by the military. On Thursday, the United States urged Sudan’s army to bring civilians into government after ousting the veteran leader, saying an announced two-year timeline was too long. Washington has called “on transitional authorities to exercise restraint and to allow space for civilian participation within the government,” State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said. The US had been trying to mend relations with Sudan after years of tension with Bashir, who seized power in a 1989 coup.
