KHARTOUM, July 13 (Xinhua) -- The African Union (AU) Envoy to Sudan Mohamed Hacen Lebatt announced on Saturday that the talks between Sudan's Transitional Military Council (TMC) and the opposition Freedom and Change Alliance, have been delayed to Sunday.
"The meeting, which was scheduled to be held Saturday between the TMC and the Freedom and Change Alliance, has been delayed to Sunday," Lebatt told reporters.
He explained that the delay came at the request by the Freedom and Change Alliance for further consultations.
On Friday, the TMC and the opposition alliance agreed on the political declaration, which determines all authorities of the transitional period.
On July 5, the TMC and the Freedom and Change Alliance, under mediation by Ethiopia and the African Union, reached a deal on establishing transitional authorities to jointly govern the country.
The two sides agreed on a three-year sovereignty council by rotation and a civilian government of independent national competence.
They also agreed to delay the establishment of a legislative council until the sovereignty council and the civilian government are established.
