The representatives of the oppositional coalition and Sudanese Transitional Council have signed the final power-sharing agreement, as Reuters reports. 

The main features of the country's political organization are reported in the agreement. The document is the main legislative framework for transfer of the power from the military to civilian. 

One of Sudan’s top generals, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, who is deputy head of the military council, and opposition alliance representative Ahmad al-Rabie had initialed the agreement on Aug. 4 and were the main signatories on Saturday. 

Leaders of Ethiopia, South Sudan and Kenya were also present.

“The coming period will be a test for us, no one will be excluded,” said leading opposition figure Sadiq al-Mahdi, Sudan’s last democratically elected premier. “We will open the door to everyone to participate in Sudan’s celebration.”

We recall that the Transitional Military Council was ruling Sudan since April after the overthrow of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
