Present Political Situation of Sudan (Relevant for GS Prelims & Mains Paper II; IOBR)

After Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir was toppled on April 11 by months-long popular uprising, the army generals had two options before them.

One was the Tunisian model in which the army allowed a smooth transition of power to a civilian government after Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was removed from power in 2011.

The other was the Egyptian model in which the army, after losing power to a civilian ruler following Hosni Mubarak’s ouster as President in 2011, staged a coup in 2013 and reinstalled itself at the helm.

Unfortunately, the Sudanese generals chose the latter, setting the stage for a prolonged protests. The protesters had demanded a transfer of power to a transitional civilian government, followed by free and fair elections. But the generals used the crisis to concentrate more powers in their own hands.
