Sudan’s Abdallah Hamdok stepped down as prime minister on Sunday after months of political turmoil in the country, foreign sources reported.

In a speech to the nation, Hamdok announced his expected resignation, telling the Sudanese that he decided to return them “the mission you had entrusted to me”.

He announced his resignation after the killing of three protesters in Khartoum by the security forces, after seeing his failure to prevent escalation and he has no control over the political developments in the country.

His resignation confirms the death of his 21st November political agreement with the Commander-in-Chief of the Sudanese Army Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.

The former prime minister admitted his failure to bring the political forces to agree on a political declaration enabling him to form a government of technocrats as it was agreed in the framework agreement with al-Burhan.
