The African Union (AU) has now lifted its suspension of Sudan’s membership after a transitional government was put in place.

The new government brings an end to months of violence and chaos following the toppling of former leader, Omar al-Bashir.

The AU suspended Sudan for three months after the military initially refused to hand over power to a civilian regime with 60 days.

Following negotiations and dialogue, the civilian opposition and the military agreed to a new transitional government. The parties signed a three-year power-sharing deal in August.

Sudan also named Abdallah Hamdok as prime minister with Hamdok forming a new Cabinet on Thursday.

Sudan’s new prime minister has said that the country needs up to $10 billion in foreign aid to rebuild it’s economy.

Abdalla Hamdok says the money will be needed over the next two years to help fix an economy that is almost collapsing.

As leader of the transitional government he has the task of restoring peace as well and helping to return the country to civilian rule.
