3:37 am
their duty is to save and to defend the homeland they will have no control over power. that's why we will continue to demand that transition of power to on a civil authority and from day on from this day on. we declare that we will not deal deal with the military council. and the people and the street must continue to demonstrate and in a few days time we will hold you and now the press conference where we will declare the civil body to which power will be transferred. freedom. peace and justice

3:39 am
will only do you want to meet may god my t.s.p. sembler sings be with you. there evolutionary revolting people. we meet and gather today at these hysterical moments where we are shaping the history and future of our country we. have fur that we can not go back to square one. we can not be. to read. their military gloats we can not allow the former regime to regain power. and. i mean we knew this very dream is that tempting to reproduce itself if their team is attempting to clone. itself.
3:40 am
we. stood up to it. and. then. the field marshal. came to power and to him we are standing. we. have given you a promise promise that cannot be broken you are the heart of the soul of that evolution today. we will declare the leave the names of the solver in seven to transition albaugh the. you must. be aware. that that demands voiced by the people came in three t.
3:41 am
is sovereign can send a cabinet of ministers and then. legislative council today will declare the names of the members of the server and karen said of these names will be handed over to the military council to endorse. on that moment. and turn him civil but they will be declared the body that has been elected by the free them and change a law and. however that remnants of the ousted regime. have their faces exposed. yesterday. they said. said what they said. that.
3:42 am
they wish to examine deliberate. and this class. has more than one hundred says jetson's presented by various political parties. so what we've been hearing is from leaders of the will that was the freedom and change movement but before that the s.p.i. the sudanese professionals association and the overriding feeling from that news conference and you saw the sheer number of supporters out there and caught him as well is that the protest movement is not backing down at all in fact. i mean abdelaziz from the sudanese professionals association declared that the military council wasn't genuine in its intentions or its actions and indeed that all negotiations with the military council would be suspended and that they would
3:43 am
continue to protest they would continue to escalate peaceful demonstrations until all demands are met and the key the central demand of all of those is the idea that power be handed over in sudan to a civilian government as soon as possible because there is it would seem very little trust in what they call the old regime or remnants of the old regime. in the current military council have we got muhammad with us we have muhammad as well listening along to all of that as well mohammad i mean you've been out with those protesters the last few days they looks like they wouldn't back down and now there's this confirmation that they are just not going to deal with this military council. not side come out strong words there from the leadership of the protests just minutes ago and those speeches are still going on
3:44 am
a speech to mixed with slogans chants and poetry the mood of the police shows how serious these protesters are and their leadership about what they want to do they simply want to continue and not to lose the momentum they have preached over the last couple of weeks they know that the day the protestors disperse and go back home they will be very weak around the negotiation table with the military council so they have a sense is to keep the pressure and to keep the heat on the military council to see are soon as possible they know that time is not on their side in this deal with the military council and that's why you have seen these strong they want to continue and they want to keep the momentum which is very difficult because day by day people get tired probably the military council knows this to reality they know that the protesters cannot remain in the cities for a long time to come. home and told us they know also this is do they run the risk
3:45 am
as what our earlier guests was saying of pushing the military too far of not cooperating at all and it actually pushing the military further away from them and further away from any potential deal. well that's that's a point that can be argue with but also they know that the military council has been really eat anything very day that they have taken from the all the regime only in response to the demands of the people so it will be a big contradiction on the part of the military council to say ok now we have power from and bashir but we're not going to hand it to civilians so the protestors they know they are students one of them is the people in the streets and that's the minister and the other one is that the military came to power in the name of the people so the people are still here and there are not happy with that is not so far
3:46 am
. mohamed vall thank you so much for that from khartoum there as we follow those events the sudanese professional's association part of that opposition protest movement basically saying they're not backing down they will not deal with the military council they are still repeating that demand that they want all their demands met and that is the immediate transfer of power to a civilian body which they say they will be announcing names for in the next few days thanks for staying with us here on the news hour from doha. on the team in london the latest from sudan and indeed true lanka in just a few moments time. and

4:00 am
into real actions as president of ukraine he has now spoken to his supporters and to his campaign members back here at headquarters and he said he thanked everyone for their involvement and of course to the ukrainian people for choosing him and he said that what happened in ukraine would set a good example to other post soviet countries that could become more democratic. in the way they govern now with me to talk about how mr may in fact govern is michael. said ski from the globe who's a global affairs analyst michael thank you very much for talking to al-jazeera this evening. what is now going to happen we have a president potentially it seems who has no political experience how is he going to govern this country.
