The Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok commended the Sudanese people who marched on the 21st of October around the country and abroad.
Prime Minister Dr. Abdallah Hamdok said that the crowds that took to the streets on the 21st of October have sent a clear message and assured that there will be no backing down from the revolution’s goals.
Hamdok thanked the Sudanese public for choosing to commit to the democratic transition and the December revolution’s slogans (Freedom, Peace, and Justice).
In a videotaped statement released Thursday evening, Hamdok stated that the Sudanese public proved its commitment to “peace and democracy.”
“I salute the Sudanese people on this great day, the 57th anniversary of the glorious October revolution,” he said.
Hamdok pointed out that the Sudanese public has been seeking a democratic project for over 5 decades “ever since the October 1964 revolution.”
The Prime Minister also commended the police leaderships for their part in protecting the peaceful assembly.
On Thursday, Khartoum witnessed crowds estimated at hundreds of thousands in Khartoum, Omdurman, and Bahri, who took to the streets demanding the removal of the military component from the transitional authority and delivering the country’s authority to the civilians.
