Sudan’s transitional military council has arrested members of the former government and promised not to disperse protesters.
A spokesman also urged the opposition to pick the next prime minister and vowed to implement their choice.
Months of protests in Sudan led to the ouster and arrest of long-time leader Omar al-Bashir on Thursday.
Demonstrators have vowed to stay on the streets until there is an immediate move to civilian rule.
A sit-in is continuing outside the defence ministry in the capital Khartoum.
What did the military council say?
In a press conference on Sunday, spokesman Maj Gen Shams Ad-din Shanto said the military council was “ready to implement” whatever civilian government the opposition parties agreed.
“We won’t appoint a PM. They’ll choose one,” he said, referring to opposition and protest groups.
He also said the army would not remove protesters from their sit-in by force, but called on protesters “to let normal life resume” and stop unauthorised roadblocks.
“Taking up arms will not be tolerated,” he added.
The military council also announced a raft of decisions, including:
- New heads of the army and the police
- A new head of the powerful National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS)
- Committees to fight corruption, and to investigate the former ruling party
- The lifting of all media restrictions and censorship
- The release of police and security officers detained for supporting protesters
- A review of diplomatic missions, and the dismissal of Sudan’s ambassadors to the US and to the UN in Geneva.
