the Dissolution of the ousted president's party should ensure the sudanese people's dignity, says the prime minister.

Sudan's new government has ordered the deposed autocrat Omar al-Bashir's party dissolved and his regime "settled".

in response to the government an appeal from the protest movement, which led to the longtime leader's fall.

Bashir and his National congress party (NCP) had ruled the nordøstafrikanske country since 1989, when nationwide protests resulted in the fact that he was dropped earlier in the year.

It is the country's new government with the prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok at the head, which has taken the decision to dissolve the NCP. It happens after the government has approved a law entitled "the Liquidation of the regime from the 30. June 1989".

- The National congress party is dissolved, and its registration is withdrawn from the list of political parties in Sudan, it is said in the decree.

It adds that there will be established a committee to confiscate all of the NCP's properties and assets.

- None of the symbols of the regime or the party will be allowed to participate in any political activity for ten years, is standing there.

Prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok highlights on Twitter, to the dissolution of the NCP is "not revenge" against the country's former leaders.

But the resolution aims to maintain the sudan people's dignity, which was destroyed by dishonest people, he writes.

The new government is taking an important step away from Bashir's nearly 30-year authoritarian rule. It was a period marked by internal conflicts, international isolation and an economy on its knees.

But Bashir's case earlier in the year also led to some months of great tension between the powerful military and the civilian demokratigrupper that strong in numbers took up the fight.

It was a conflict with bloody clashes and died.
