The Sudanese interim government, the main opposition coalition and the rebel groups involved in the peace process have reached agreement on their representation in parliament as part of the final effort to conclude a pact to end the conflict in the country.

According to the Sudan Tribune news portal, the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), which brings together various rebel groups, and the Sudan-Minni Minnawi Liberation Movement (SLM-MM) will have 75 seats, the country’s legislative council, which accounts for 25 percent of the total.

The agreement between the executive, the Armed Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) and the SRF was reached after about ten days of talks in the capital, Khartoum. The rebels originally asked for 140 of the agency’s 300 seats.
