Sudan PM Names First Cabinet since Removal of Al-Bashir

Thursday, 05 September 2019 02:38 PM EDT

CAIRO (AP) — Sudan's newly appointed prime minister is announcing his Cabinet, the first since the military's ouster of autocratic former President Omar al-Bashir in April. The new members include Sudan's first woman foreign minister and a former World Bank economist.

The Cabinet is part of a power-sharing agreement between the military and pro-democracy demonstrator, following pressure from the United States and its Arab allies, amid growing concerns the political crisis could ignite a civil war.

Abdalla Hamdok tells a press conference in the capital, Khartoum, on Thursday the Cabinet will include at least three women, including Asmaa Abdalla as the first woman to serve as foreign minister in Sudanese history.

He also picked Ibrahim Elbadawi, a former World Bank economist, to lead the Finance Ministry. Overhauling Sudan's ailing economy is a top challenge facing the county's transitional government.

The military has nominated Lt. Gen. Gamal Omar as defense minister and Idriss al-Traifi as interior minister.
