Sudan’s transitional military council on Sunday announced that they arrested more senior officials from the old regime of ousted President Omar al-Bashir.

Addressing a news conference in the capital Khartoum, the council’s spokesman Shams Aldin Kabashi said that the national security would be restructured without giving any further details on arrestments.

“A lot of procedures are underway. We ordered to restructure the national army. Confiscation of the ruling party offices in the entire states has already begun. We would also review many laws including the public order law and forming the anti-corruption bases on new and transparent standards,” he said.

Kabashi called on the political parties to submit their list of nominees for the formation of the new Cabinet in consensus between the different political parties.

On Thursday, the Sudanese army ousted longtime President al-Bashir, who ruled Sudan since 1989, following months of popular protests against his rule.

The army also established a military council to run the country for a transitional period of two years.

On Saturday, Lt. Gen. Abdel Fattah Burhan, the head of the military council, pledged large-scale political and economic reforms.

In a televised speech, Burhan said the country’s two-year transitional period will end with free and fair elections and vowed to put on trial those involved in the killing of the protesters as well as corruption under the old regime.
