Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, a UN economist who took up the job last month, was supposed to announce a cabinet on Wednesday of last week under a post-Bashir roadmap.
But the announcement was postponed as he mulled the nominees proposed by the umbrella movement which led months-long protests against Bashir and the generals who ousted him in April. The announcement had been delayed for days as Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok mulled over the nominees proposed by the movement that led the months-long protests against Bashir and also the generals who ousted him in April. The 18-member cabinet includes four women, including foreign affairs minister Asma Mohamed Abdalla.
Last Tuesday, Hamdok received a list of candidates including 49 nominees for 14 ministries.
“The cabinet announcement will be made within a maximum of 48 hours,” Sudan’s sovereign council said in a statement.
