Sudanese President declares year-long state of emergency

@BBCAfrica
Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has declared a year-long state of emergency, dissolving his cabinet and local governments throughout the country. 

Omar al-Bashir in a televised address yesterday called on Sudan's parliament to postpone constitutional amendments that would allow him to run for another term in a presidential election in 2020. 

Bashir's announcement followed months of nearly daily protests against his rule, with thousands of people taking to the streets across the country since December 19 to call for him to stand down after nearly three decades in office.

Omar al-Bashir's term ends in 2020 and he has repeatedly promised over the years not to make new runs for the presidency. 

Since December 2018, various areas in Sudan, including the capital Khartoum, have been witnessing popular protests over the deteriorating economic conditions and price hikes of basic commodities.
