KHARTOUM, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- A joint meeting of Sudan's Sovereign Council and the Council of Ministers on Thursday approved a law to dissolve former ruling National Congress Party (NCP).
"We have passed this law in a joint meeting with our partners in the Sovereign Council to take its full legitimacy," Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok wrote on his Facebook page.
The law tends to establish justice, ensure respect for the dignity of the people, and safeguard their gains, said Hamdok, adding that the law also aims to enable recovering "the looted wealth" of the Sudanese people.
The endorsed law includes dismantling the former regime and dissolving the NCP and its institutions.
The constitutional declaration, previously approved by the sovereign council and the cabinet, stipulates that the council and the cabinet have the right to pass the laws until the transitional parliament is established.
The NCP, under former President Omar al-Bashir, had ruled Sudan for 30 years since 1989 until the Sudanese army ousted al-Bashir in April amid popular protests that erupted in December last year.
On Wednesday, local Sudanese media reported the NCP warned in a statement against any move to dissolve it or prevent it from its legal right in political exercise.
