The Chairman of the Transitional Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan appointed Alam-Aldin Abdallah Abasher as the Minister of Livestock and Hashem Sheikh Tahir as the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure.

The two ministers were picked by the Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok who had requested the ruling coalition of Forces for Freedom and Change to make some candidatures from the Blue Nile and eastern Sudan stressing that his cabinet should represent the whole country.
