“Achieving peace and solving the economic crisis were priorities”: Sudan’s PM


Sudan’s new Prime Minister (PM) Abdallah Hamdok has arrived in Khartoum on Wednesday evening from Ethiopia.

He was received at Khartoum Airport by the leading figures of the Force for Freedom and Change (FFC).

Upon his arrival, he held a press conference, where he said that the government will work for realizing a pluralistic democratic system in which all Sudanese would respect their differences, calling for thinking about how Sudan shall be governed and leaving the choice of choosing the governor for the great Sudanese people.

He added, “The government’s top priorities are to stop the war, build sustainable peace, address the severe economic crisis and build a balanced foreign policy”.

He also said that Sudan has made the first steps towards the non-quarreling partnership after formation of the Sovereignty Council and after few days the Council of Ministers, emphasizing that democracy can be learned only from within its practice.

Then he was sworn before the Chairman of the Sovereignty Council and the Chief Justice as the Prime Minister.

The new government will run the country until an election.
