Sudan Sovereign Council Member: We Haven’t Yet Reached State of Emergency Stage
[AAWSAT] Mohammed Alfaki Suleiman, a member of Sudan’s newly-formed Sovereign Council, revealed it was too son to announce a state of emergency over heavy rainfall that has caused floods across the country.
In an interview with Asharq al-Awsat, Alfaki said that during a meeting held between the Council and Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, discussions focused on ways to confronting urgent matters, such as floods and torrential rains, and a conflict in the city of Port Sudan.
Alfaki warned that there could be more floods in the coming days because of persistent rainfall but denied that the situation has reached a point of announcing a state of emergency.
The 11-member Sovereign Council and the prime minister were sworn in this week. And a government is expected to be formed soon, said Alfaki.
