KHARTOUM, May 15 (Xinhua) -- Sudan's Transitional Military Council (TMC) announced Wednesday that it agreed with the major opposition forces on the main rule structures and duration of the transitional period.

"We have agreed on powers of the sovereignty council, the council of ministers and the legislative council," Lt. Gen. Yasser al-Atta, a TMC member, said at a press conference in Khartoum early Wednesday.

"We have also agreed that the transitional period duration would be three years, and the first six months of them will be allotted for achieving peace all over Sudan," he added.

According to the TMC member, the legislative council is to be comprised of 300 members, with 67 percent from the Freedom and Change Alliance (the opposition forces) and 33 percent from the other political forces.
