December 28, 2021 (KHARTOUM) – Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok received on Tuesday calls from a number of Arab and international leaders requesting him to not resign from his position.

A month after an agreement with the Commander-in-Chief of the Sudanese army Abdel Fattah al-Burhan on November 21, Hamdok failed to form a government of technocrats and to bring the political forces to sign a new political declaration.

Also, multiple sources said that the prime minister recently informed al-Burhan of his decision to leave his job and informed his office members to prepare for the handover.

The Saudi Press Agency reported that Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud spoke with al-Burhan and Hamdok on Tuesday.

During his separate calls, Al-Saud stressed the Kingdom’s keenness on Sudan’s stability and called for the formation of a new government as soon as possible.

He further called for an “Agreement between the military and civilian components for the benefit of Sudan and its brotherly people,” according to the official agency.

However, sources close to the calls said Al-Saud called appealed to Hamdok to reverse his decision and requested al-Burhan to reconsider his position and make the necessary concessions to get the country out of the current crisis.

Hamdok also received calls from the UN Secretary-General, the Arab League and the U.S. Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa.

The officials discussed with the Sudanese prime minister the need to reconsider his decision and work for a genuine solution for the crisis.

The African Union, which has suspended Sudan’s membership immediately after the coup, announced last November that a delegation from the Peace And Security Council would hold discussions with the parties to the constitutional declaration of August 17, 2019, to re-establish the civilian-military partnership.

However, the military component brushed the request saying they prefer internal efforts to settle the crisis.

Last week, Hamdok postponed his resignation and linked it with progress in his quest to form a government.

The Forces for Freedom and Change said that they rejected Hamdok’s request to meet them. But a delegation of the National Umma Party NUP met him.

The NUP two days after filling a memorandum to the FFC groups including several options on who to end the crisis.

Hamdok who is accused of betrayal by the FFC for signing the 21th-November deal with al-Burhan says he endorsed the agreement because several FFC leaders brokered it and encouraged him to ink it.

He was alluding to the Fadlallah Burma, NUP acting leader.

The NUP leadership rejected the agreement.

Hamdok was recently subjected to severe criticism from some commentators, bloggers who urged him to leave saying he failed during the past two years and he bears the responsibility, at least, for the major part of the current situation.
