most of the people protested against the 30 years ruling was rapidly increased with the announcement of Bashir to increase the prices of bread and fuel.

In the last 11th of April 2019, Sudan president Omar al-Bashir was removed from power by a military coup. The defense minister of Sudan Awad Ibn Ouf also a military leader addressed the nation and announced that there will be an election after the two years of transitional period as well as the emergency regulations will extend for three months.
