Sudan's Bashir tells parliament to postpone constitutional amendments

KHARTOUM, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir on Friday called on parliament to postpone constitutional amendments that would allow him to run for another term in a presidential election in 2020.

Facing the biggest popular protests since he came to power 30 years ago, Bashir also declared a state of emergency for one year and said he would dissolve the central government and state governments. (Reporting by Khalid Abdelaziz, writing by Lena Masri, Editing by William Maclean)
