CAIRO, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said on Sunday the political deal he signed with the military grants him complete freedom in forming a government of technocrats, Al Jazeera TV reported.

 

Earlier on Sunday, Sudan’s military reinstated Hamdok and promised to release all political detainees after weeks of deadly unrest triggered by a coup.
