The election of a fearsome commander at the signing table and the absence of women who played a crucial role in the protest movement show that there are still obstacles in the way of Sudan's road to full democracy.
Following his fall, the Transitional Military Council (TMC) intervened and announced a three-year transitional period.
However, demonstrators continued to call for civilian rule and on Saturday thousands of people flocked to the capital to celebrate its historic signing.
The choice of signatories in the agreement on the division of power was full of symbolism.
The opposition – the Sudanese Professional (SPA) – proposed Ahmed Al-Rabee, a schoolteacher who earns around $ 33 a month, a symbol of the economic plight of professionals in the midst of institutional corruption in Sudan.
In the meantime, TMC introduced the head of his paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo – simply known as Hemedti.
When Hemedti left the signing, He was surrounded by protesters singing, "blood for blood, we will not accept blood money," CNN told eyewitnesses.
Hemedti has also provided Sudanese forces to the Saudi Arabian-led coalition fighting in Yemen. And the presence of Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir at the signing signals that the Gulf State of Hemedti will give in his homeland.
Fighting for freedom
Protesters swore to continue their fight for justice. Mohammad Naji Al-Assam is a 29-year-old physician and spokesman for the opposition party Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC). He said an independent committee will investigate the atrocities against Sudanese that stretched out until Bashir came to power. It did not work.
