France 24 | Opposition leader denies Bashir ouster was ‘military coup’, calls for Sudan to join ICC

A top opposition leader called Saturday for Sudan to join the International Criminal Court which has indicted its ousted president Omar al-Bashir, as protesters and the military met to discuss civilian rule.

Sadiq al-Mahdi, a former prime minister and head of the opposition National Umma Party that has backed the protests, also told reporters that the army’s ouster of Bashir was “not a military coup”.

His comments came as a joint committee representing the ruling military leadership and protesters held their first meeting to discuss a demand by demonstrators for a handover to civilian rule.

Bashir was ousted by the army on April 11 after months-long protests that rocked his three-decade-old rule.
