Sudan’s main opposition coalition and the ruling military council have signed a power-sharing agreement that paves the way for a new transitional government for the country.

The deal, which has taken months to negotiate, was signed in the capital Khartoum in the presence of the Prime Minister of Ethiopia and the President of South Sudan.

It establishes a 39-month transitional period of joint rule ahead of national elections.

The agreement follows the overthrow of long-time leader Omar Bashir, who was toppled after street protests and is now awaiting trial on corruption charges.
