Most likely Ibn Ouf will be the current head of state of Sudan. The military said they would run the government for two years, before transferring it to civilians. However, the attitude of the military which claimed the government actually ignited the anger of civilian politicians and activists.

Because, they have been demanding that Bashir, who is considered as a dictator to step down and to be replaced by a democratic government. The coup was carried out after a wave of demonstrations demanded Bashir to resign more aggressively since last week. This has been done since December 2018.
