This article lists the heads of government of Sudan, from the establishment of the office of Chief Minister in 1952 until the present day. The office of Prime Minister was abolished after the 1989 coup d'état,[1] and reestablished in 2017 when Bakri Hassan Saleh was appointed Prime Minister by President Omar al-Bashir.[2]

The current office holder is Abdalla Hamdok, who was appointed to the position by the Sovereignty Council on 21 August 2019, as part of the country's transition to democracy.[3] On 25 October 2021, Hamdok was deposed and placed under house arrest, following a coup d'état.[4] On 21 November 2021, Hamdok was reinstated as prime minister as part of an agreement with the civilian political parties.[5][6]
