Sudan has sworn in its first cabinet since the military ousted President Omar al-Bashir in April following pro-democracy mass protests. The new members include Sudan’s first woman foreign minister, Asmaa Abdalla, and a former World Bank economist as finance minister, AP said.
The cabinet is part of a power-sharing agreement between the military and pro-democracy demonstrators.
The agreement was signed following pressure from the US and its Arab allies, amid growing concerns the political crisis could ignite a civil war.
The new prime minister, Abdallah Hamdok, is still negotiating with the pro-democracy movement over the last two cabinet posts.
