Jubilant crowds celebrated in Khartoum on Saturday, after Sudan's ruling military council and main opposition coalition reached an agreement for a new period of transitional government.

African Union (AU) mediator Mohamed Hassan Lebatt made the announcement, saying, "I am very happy, in the name of the African mediation and in the name of the two negotiating parties, to announce to the Sudanese public, the national, international and African public that the two delegations have fully agreed on a constitutional declaration."

Lebatt did not provide further details on the agreement itself, however, noting that further meetings would be held to work out the technical arrangements of the signing ceremony.

The agreement comes following protracted negotiations between the Transitional Military Council (TMC) and the Alliance for Freedom and Change.

The TMC took control of Sudan after the ousting of former President Omar al-Bashir in April amid mass protests against his 30-year rule.
