Sudan: Omar Al-Bashir's Power Calculus

The Africa Center for Strategic Studies published on 11 March 2019 an analysis titled "Sudan's Shifting Calculus of Power" by Luka Kuol.

President Omar al-Bashir's decision to declare a state of emergency and put military personnel in key governmental positions signals an intention to use greater repression to quell the popular protests that began in December 2018. It also suggests that he sees the military as providing a safer personal exit strategy should he be forced to give up power.
