Sudan PM Pledges to Set Transitional Period 'Back On Course'

Khartoum — Sudan's Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok has pledged to put the transitional period 'back on course', and to implement all the demands that were mentioned in the memoranda of the Families of the Victims of the December Revolution, and the Resistance Committees within two weeks.

In a speech on Monday addressed to the Sudanese nation on the eve of the June 30 March of Millions today, Hamdok promised to correct the course of the transitional period, stressing that all the demands mentioned in these memoranda are worthy, necessary and inevitable, to put the locomotive of the revolution on the right track.

The transitional government will work to implement the demands optimally during the next two weeks, aiming at achieving the highest levels of consensus and popular consent.

He asserted the government's obligations to achieve justice and retribution that ensure that crimes committed during the past thirty years are not repeated.

The PM also emphasised combating "the policies of organised impoverishment that our people have suffered during the past three decades in favour of balanced economic policies that guarantee development, fair distribution of resources, provision of basic services for all and achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in Sudan".
