Sudan will replace all provincial military governors with civilians in the coming week, the information minister said, after tense talks within the power-sharing government over the pace of the nation’s democratic transition.

The North African country, where the army overthrew long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir a year ago, will also appoint a transitional parliament by the start of May, the minister, Faisal Mohamed Salih, said Saturday in an interview.
