The Sudanese people flooded the streets of this city to celebrate the historic agreement reached between the military and opposition leaders who aim to end political upheavals since last month.

The power-sharing agreement was reached on Friday after the two sides agreed to return to the negotiating table of the Ethiopian business and the African Union as intermediaries.

The agreement was reached after the round of negotiations in May failed to determine whether the Sudanese public or the military would lead.

“Both sides agreed to create a sovereign Council administered by the civil and military in rotation for a period of three years or more,” said African Union mediator Mohamed El Hacen Lebatt told reporters.

The cornerstone of the political crisis since the military overthrew previous president Omar al-Bashir in a coup of April following massive protests across the country since last month.

“We want to emphasize all political forces and armed movements as well as all parties involved in this change, that this agreement is inclusive and does not exclude anybody,” deputy leader of the Military Transitional Council, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, after the deal was reached.

The tensions between the two sides broke out after a brutal raid incident over protesters who refused to move from the military headquarters in Khartoum, causing dozens of demonstrators to be killed and injured hundreds of others on June 3.
