[Republic of] Sudan's de facto military leader steps down

Sudanese Defense Minister Ahmed Awad Ibn Auf stepped down as the transitional military council late Friday, a day after he announced the removal of longtime leader Omar al-Bashir.
al-Bashir beat a ICC rap, because "lack of cooperation".
Ibn Auf, who is under US sanctions for supporting genocidal militias [!] in the Darfur region, had been under international pressure to establish a civilian transitional government. He said General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan Abdulrahman would succeed him as the council's leader.
"This country has great people and a great army": US boilerplate
But Khalid Omer, who leads the opposition Sudanese Congress Party, told DW: "They (military council) are trying to steal the revolution. If you want to engage in genuine dialogue you wouldn't suspend the constitution."
Instead, you "suspend" it piecemeal.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
