Sudan’s key opposition may nominate economist Abdalla Hamdok for prime minister

Sudan’s main opposition alliance will nominate economist Abdalla Hamdok to be the prime minister in the country’s transitional government, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

Sudan’s sovereign council will be sworn in on Monday. It will appoint the prime minister based on the nomination from the opposition alliance, the Forces of Freedom and Change, according to a constitutional declaration agreed on earlier this month.

The opposition alliance will also nominate Mohamed Alhafiz Mahmoud as public prosecutor, sources said, and Abdelqadir Mohamed Ahmed as head of the judiciary.
