Politics in Sudan – level 1

19-07-2019 07:00

Omar al-Bashir is the president of Sudan. He is overthrown. After this, the country is not stable. The military takes power.

People protest. They want democracy. One demonstration ends badly. One hundred people die. This makes people angry. They protest in the streets. In the end, they make an agreement with the military.

The people and the military will be in power for three years. After three years, people can choose their leaders.

Last Thursday, somebody tries a revolution. The military stops him. They arrest 16 people. They are looking for more.

Difficult words: overthrow (take somebody down from their position of power), military (a group of important soldiers like generals), agreement (a plan which is OK for both sides).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
