A Negative Assessment of Sudan's Framework Agreement

 The Arab Center Washington, D.C. posted on 23 January 2023 a commentary titled "Sudan's Political Process and Hopes for a Civilian Government" by Kholood Khair.  

Sudan's Framework Agreement to relaunch a transition to civilian government is dependent on support from the international community.  Sudan's military rulers made few concessions and civilians will likely acquire only bureaucratic and not political power.  The author predicts the agreement "will likely lead to a weak and barely legitimate Potemkin village of a government that is unable to deliver real change."
