Hundreds of protesters took to the streets on Thursday in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum urging the new government to disband ousted President Omar al-Bashir’s party.
The protesters gathered in front of the Justice Ministry holding Sudanese flags and banners demanding the dissolution of the National Congress.
They also called for action against Sudanese officials who used force against peaceful protests in June which left 63 dead and hundreds injured.
The Sudanese Forces for Freedom and Change Coalition, the opposition body which leads the protests, held the Sudanese Military Council responsible for the killings.
On Aug. 21, a new transitional period of 39 months started in Sudan which will end with general elections. This came about as a result of a pact between the Sudanese Forces for Freedom and Change Coalition and the Sudanese Military Council.
Months of unrest forced longtime leader al-Bashir to end his 30-year rule in April.
