Sudanese opposition party leader calls on Bashir to step down

CAIRO, March 2 (Reuters) - Sudan’s main opposition party leader Sadiq al-Mahdi on Saturday called on President Omar al-Bashir to step down and sit with the opposition to agree on details of a transitional process to end the nation’s crisis, a statement from his party said.

Protests in Sudan, initially over high bread prices, have taken place nearly every day since Dec. 19 and developed into the most sustained challenge that Bashir has faced. (Reporting by Hesham Hajali Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
