Rival Protesters Gather in Sudan’s Capital

Rival protesters gathered on the streets of the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, Thursday, October 21, as tensions rise over the country’s shift to civilian rule.

READ MORE: As thousands of demonstrators aligned with the Sudan military remain outside the presidential palace for a third day this week, analysts warn that the civilian-led interim government is facing a growing crisis that could topple its rule.

With upheaval escalating nationwide, government leaders must find a way to "defuse the polarization" and "reach a compromise," said political analyst Hassan Haj Ali.

Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok should "make a partial reshuffle of his Cabinet and appoint new ministers" or expand the number of ministers in the transitional government, Ali said.

Sudan is facing its most trying political challenges since it formed an interim government among rival factions after the fall of ex-president Omar al-Bashir in 2019.

After a political coup attempt was thwarted in September, al-Bashir loyalists have upped their dissent and are demanding changes to the civilian Cabinet and the shaky coalition co-running the government.
