Sudan: Protest organisers demand scrapping of military council

DD News
In Sudan, protest organisers have demanded that the new military council be scrapped, as demonstrators kept up calls for a civilian government at a sit-in outside army headquarters. 

Thousands of demonstrators have continued to rally in support of demands for civilian rule, despite an apparent attempt to disperse them following the ouster last week of veteran president Omar al-Bashir. Mohamed Naji, a senior leader of the Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA), which is spearheading the protests, said, the protesters want the military council to be dissolved and be replaced by a civilian council having representatives of the army. 

The organisation also demanded the sacking of the country's judiciary chief, prosecutor general and the disbanding of the former president's National Congress Party (NCP). The SPA's latest demands came as the military council faced mounting public and diplomatic pressure to hand over power to a civilian administration.
