Sudan’s ruling military council¬† and the opposition Freedom and Change Alliance on Sunday signed an agreement on the constitutional declaration that organizes work of transitional government institutions.

Opposition leader Ahmed Rabie and Gen Mohamed Hamdan Daglo signed the deal.

The African Union Envoy Mohamed Hacen Lebatt and the Ethiopian Envoy Mahmud Dirir signed on the document as witnesses.

“With the signing of the agreement, we have closed a difficult page in the history of Sudan,” said Daqlu during the signing ceremony.

“We entered into the negotiations as two parties and came out as one team with no winner or loser because the interest of the homeland tops everything else,” he added.

Omer Al-Digair, a leading member in the Freedom and Change Alliance, said the agreement paves the way for the establishment of the government institutions.

The priority during the transitional period is to achieve comprehensive national reconciliation and build peace in the country, he noted.
