Who is Babiker Awadalla?
Awadalla graduated from the Gordon Memorial College law school. He held the position of Speaker of the Parliament from 1954 to 1957, and became Chief Judge in 1964. In 1966, he resigned from the court in protest of the government's refusal to reinstate the Sudanese Communist Party, which the court had held to be unconstitutionally banned from parliament.
He held different political positions in Gaafar Nimeiry's military cabinet: Prime Minister from 25 May 1969 to 27 October 1969 and Foreign Minister from 1969 to 1970. He served also as the deputy of Nimeiry. He was the only civilian member in Nimeiry's governing council.
