think. the protesters have to stay on the streets until a civilian not a military transitional council is in place. joining me now in studio. i mean things are changing so fast on the ground we heard the latest news to don's interim leader announcing the formation of a limited civilian government within two years what do you make of that recent announcement it's interesting because he kind of made some concessions towards the protests movement to the opposition leaders. in contradiction to his predecessor who stepped down yesterday so it's not really known what's going to happen next because basically he said it's going to take two years that's was his producers for this is her said yesterday so i'm not sure if the protesters will be happy with that that it's taking two years for them to have
7:05 pm
a transitional civilian government so we'll have to see how things develop in the next few weeks we've seen of course a few other victories for these protesters the defense minister abruptly stepping down that curfew has now been lifted will this all be enough to get those protesters off the streets or do you expect them to keep protesting. yeah this is actually part of what they were demanding actually what i hear from from all the people i talked to and all of what will be given a news people actually the more important thing is to have a civilian government as soon as possible now the. leaders of the protest. movement they've met today with the military council and it seems that they're making some progress they're coming forward and they're trying to reach a deal what is very important for the protesters and their leaders is to have the civilian government and not to have to be. under military rule in the next. few
7:06 pm
years maybe three months we heard that announcement of the military perhaps handing over some power to civilians how much trust is there though right now between the civilians in sudan in the military this is the problem trust is a very. rare thing here because people they don't want this egyptian like scenario to repeat itself in sudan they saw that the military in egypt took over power and they ousted the democratically elected president and then these just stayed in power and now they have a kind of a massive crackdown on all kind of opposition so they don't want this to happen in sudan and that's why they are still protesting still demanding that really civilian government should. be in power as soon as possible another hang on a just a second we'll come back to you because we want to bring in a similar story that's been unfolding in algeria thousands of demonstrators there have defied riot police to stage
7:07 pm
a mass protest in the capital. for the eighth friday in a row now an interim government has been announced as announced elections in july to replace the ousted president. but opponents there say the old regime is trying to cling to power just in a new gods. are coming back now. some strong similarities between what's going on as you don and algeria how would you compare the two and perhaps even comparisons as you mentioned the arab spring and twenty. well this is interesting because when these protests broke out. people started to magically comparing this to what happened in two thousand and eleven in tunisia and egypt so we see that the motives of the people why they go. to demonstrate where they take the streets are the same the dire economic situation the prize is very high. bread and you know basically the things. is in
7:08 pm
a very bad situation high unemployment especially among the youth and this is actually you who are. the prophet who the processors are the youth they are taking the street you can imagine a country like i was actually supposed to be rich. to the oil and gas and all that these are natural resources of thirty percent almost of them are unemployed out of forty two. million people so the problem is really the youth needs to see a change needs to see really all this corruption and all this of the turn in regimes gun and this is what's happening now no jury and so down i think it's also sending a very strong signal to other african countries sub-saharan countries who look very carefully which very carefully what's happening in sudan and duryea young people in the streets. thank you so much. now let's take
