Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned following mass protests in the country’s capital Khartoum.

The ex-Prime Minister said he has tried his best to stop the country from sliding towards disaster but he has not managed.

“Despite everything that has been done to reach a consensus… it has not happened,” Hamdok said in a statement on Monday.

His resignation comes after thousands of people Sudan thronged the streets to demand that power returns to civilians.

They were protesting after Hamdok signed an agreement with military, which staged a coup on 25 October this year. The military had initially placed Hamdok under house arrest.

Civilians claim that the agreement between the ex-prime minister and the army did not clarify when the country will hold the next election.
