With Military taking over the Sudan the protest continue with charter of demands from the protesters to military council for talks with formation of civilian government

Sudanese protest organisers presented demands including the creation of a civilian government in talks with the country’s new military rulers late on Saturday, the group spearheading demonstrations said.

Thousands remained encamped outside the army headquarters in the capital overnight to keep up the pressure on a military council that took power after ousting veteran leader Omar al-Bashir on Thursday.

A 10-member delegation representing the protesters held talks with the military council and delivered their demands on Saturday, according to a statement by the umbrella group leading the protests, the Alliance for Freedom and Change.

One of the alliance’s leaders, Omar al-Degier, said in the statement that the demands include restructuring the country’s feared National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), whose chief Salih Ghosh has resigned following the ouster of Bashir.
