“We have no ambitions to hold the reigns of power.” Those were the words from the head of Sudan’s military council’s political committee, in response to ongoing protests in the capital, Khartoum on Friday.

They followed the removal of longtime President Omar al-Bashir, after 30 years in power.

In a press conference on Friday, Omar Zeinalabdin said the army will respect the demands of the people.

He also plesged a new government would be run by civilians.

But will that be enough to satisfy the protesters?

And how challenging will transition be?
