The head of Sudan's ruling military council, General Abdel Fattah Al Burhan, will head a new joint civilian-military council when it is formed, a top general said on Tuesday.
"The head of the sovereign council will be the chief of the transitional military council," Lieutenant General Salah Abdelkhalik told reporters.
