Why the Military Promised to Withdraw from Power in Sudan

Blogbeitrag | 2023

  • Abstract

    Despite the coup and the long precedent of military rule in Sudan, military leader Abdel Fattah al-Burhan stated from the beginning that the military would withdraw from direct rule. Why would a military do this after staging a risky coup? Hager Ali argues that a successful military coup does not guarantee power. Dissolving former ruling parties and purging institutions breaks with old regimes. But building strong political parties to govern after ousting long-time rulers takes far more time than new incumbents have, especially when they face severe crises.
