Sudan’s new 21-member cabinet will be sworn in on Friday and will be hard pressed to deal with a growing economic crisis.
Sudan has been grappling with an acute foreign exchange shortage and inflation above 65 percent for several months, prompting Bashir on Sunday to sack his 31-member cabinet to “fix the situation”.
The ruling National Congress Party (NCP), in a late meeting Thursday, approved the ministers chosen by Prime Minister Moutaz Mousa Abdallah, who had been tasked with forming a new government after he himself was sworn in on Monday.
The executive bureau of NCP approved the nominated people from the party to take their positions as ministers,” Faisal Hassan Ibrahim, a top aide to Bashir, told reporters after the party meeting.
Sudan’s president Omar al-Bashir sacked the previous government last week and is expected to chair the first meeting for the new team on Sunday.
The cabinet is due to be sworn in on Friday, and is scheduled to hold its first meeting on Sunday.
Several ministers from the previous government were retained in the new, smaller cabinet.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
