2019–2022 Transitional Cabinet
Draft Constitutional Declaration
The sustained civil disobedience by Sudanese citizens that preceded the April coup d'état continued, in opposition to the Transitional Military Council
(TMC). Negotiations between the TMC and the Forces of Freedom and Change
alliance (FFC) led to the July Political Agreement and the August Draft Constitutional Declaration, which gave the FFC the choice of the ministers of the transitional government,
with the sovereignty council holding the right to veto nominations,
apart from the defence and interior ministers, who are to be selected by military members of the Sovereignty Council and appointed by the prime minister.
Chapter 5 (Article 14) of the Draft Constitutional Declaration defines the Transitional Cabinet in similar terms, but gives the Prime Minister the right to choose the other members of the cabinet from a list provided to him or her by the FFC. The cabinet members are "confirmed by the Sovereignty Council".
Article 16.(a) of the Draft Constitutional Declaration requires the Prime Minister and members of Cabinet to be "Sudanese by birth", at least 25 years old, a clean police record for "crimes of honour".
Article 16.(b) excludes dual nationals from being a Minister of Defence, Interior, Foreign Affairs or Justice unless an exemption is agreed by the Sovereignty Council and the FFC for the position of Prime Minister, or by the Sovereignty Council and the Prime Minister for ministerial positions.
The transitional period ministers are forbidden under Article 19 of the Draft Constitutional Declaration from running in the planned 2022 Sudanese general election
, a Sudanese public administrator who served in numerous international administrative positions during the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries,
was nominated by the FFC as Prime Minister
and formally sworn in on 21 August 2019.
The Sudanese Women's Union argued that women had played as significant a role as men in the political changes of 2019 and that Sudanese women "claim an equal share of 50-50 with men at all levels, measured by qualifications and capabilities".
annual national budgets mostly funded Sudanese security and other armed forces (70 percent in 2016), with the 2018 budget allocating 3 percent to education
In November 2019, a plan to raise the fraction of the budget allocated to education to 20 percent was announced.
