Ismail al-Taj, spokesman of the Professional Assembly on behalf of opposition movements has called on the Transitional Military Council (TMC) to “offer true and objective concessions for the sake of the country’s good,” while addressing a press conference in Khartoum on Monday.

The opposition leader accused the TMC of boycotting all efforts to end the crisis, saying their “demands are procrastination and prolonging, and it is an attempt to drag the crisis on, and to create rifts and disputes that were neither there originally nor were discussed.”

Addressing the internet shutdown imposed by the TMC since June 10, al-Taj called on the Council to “quit this information crime, and order the internet to be back so that everyone can enjoy such a right.”

Sudan has been led by the TMC since the ousting of President Omar Al-Bashir in April of 2019, following mass protests against his 30-year rule. The Sudanese Professionals Assembly, an umbrella association of several national trade unions, has taken a leading role in organising the opposition protest movement.
