25.11. 2021(Khartoum) The Supreme Coordination of Eastern Sudan Entities has nominated head of the Hadandawa tribe, Muhammad al-Amin Turk, to fill the seat allocated for Eastern Sudan in the Transitional Sovereign Council.
Turk led widespread protests in eastern Sudan in mid-September and closed the ports and the national road, calling for the dissolution of Hamdok government.
After October 25 coup, the tribal leader lifted the closure. However Turk is widely seen as a staunch ally of the military component of the transitional government.
