SUDAN – Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok on Sunday, September 1, rejected any attempt to intervene in or influence his selection of ministers for the transitional cabinet.
According to xinhuanet, Hamdok made the remarks in a statement, criticizing what he termed as “quota-based lists” presented by the Freedom and Change Alliance.
He stressed commitment to the set standards for selecting the government ministers to lead the country to safety.
He added that only seven ministers have so far been selected from the nominees for the ministerial posts, demanding the Freedom and Change Alliance to present other alternatives within 24 hours.
The same news site reveals that On August 27, Hamdok received the lists of candidates for the transitional cabinet.
The next day, on August 28, Hamdok was set to form a cabinet whose ministers were to be nominated by the Freedom and Change Alliance, except for the ministers of defense and interior who will be selected by the military members in the Sovereign Council.
