The Transitional Military Council is the current military junta governing Sudan. It was established on 11 April 2019 after the 2019 Sudanese coup d'état, and is headed by Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan, Inspector of the Armed Forces, after Ahmed Awad Ibn Auf resigned as leader one day following the coup.
The deputy leader of the Council is the commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Lieutenant General Mohamed Hamdan "Hemeti" Dagalo. The RSF is the immediate successor organisation to the Janjaweed militia.
The Council's media spokesman is Major General Shams Ad-din Shanto. Some of the Council's other known members are General Galaledin Alsheikh, and Lieutenant General Omar Zain al-Abidin, the leader of the junta's "political committee".
Major General Shanto, in a press conference on 14 April, stated that the Council was inviting the opposition and protestors to name a civilian government (except for the Ministries of Defense and Interior) and a prime minister to lead it, which the junta would then "implement".
