Sudanese civilian groups and the ruling junta have missed a deadline to form a civilian-led transitional government amid disagreements on security reforms and other issues. According to a timeline set up by the parties, a new prime minister and other posts should have been announced on Tuesday. The deadline lapsed after the parties twice failed to sign a final transition deal over disagreements on the integration of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) into the army. A joint committee from the military and RSF, which was set up to discuss contentious issues, reportedly suspended the talks for one day for further consultations, Al-Intibaha website reported. Meanwhile, the RSF has reportedly sent “about 14 armoured vehicles” to the capital, Khartoum, “in anticipation of any emergency”, Paris-based Sudan Tribune news site reported.
