The Sudan transitional government policy and action were different from the socioeconomic and political demands of the revolutionary forces and from the Economic Salvation Plan developed by the civil government political incubator, Forces of Freedom and Change. Economic measures proposed targeted macroeconomic stabilisation through immediate lifting of subsidies and freeing the exchange rate, without viable pre-conditions being in place. The government plan to mitigate negative effects of removing the fuel and food subsidies was to raise wage of civil servants and to provide cash transfers to the poor. Both of these two measures as proposed were totally inappropriate.
