February 21, 2009 (KHARTOUM) — The regional council of the Sudan’s People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) in South Kordofan state decided in an emergency meeting held last Thursday to remove the deputy governor of the state Maj. Gen. Daniel Kodi from the chairmanship of the party in the region.

The motion was approved by 33 of the 37 members of the SPLM regional body.

SPLM Secretary of information and communication in the state, Mohamadein Ibrahim confirmed the vote of no confidence against Kodi and called to hold an extraordinary conference to elect a new chairman for the party in Southern Kordofan who should also take Kodi’s position as deputy governor of the state.

Ibrahim attributed Kodi’s removal for his failure to manage his political and executive duties, and accused him of violating the SPLM constitution.

Last December the party had decided to break the partnership with the National Congress Party established after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement if the NCP does not resolve the outstanding issues in the state.

The deputy governor is accused of neglecting the reappointment of the former state finance (SPLM) who had been sacked from his position by the governor (NCP), after the failure of a joint political committee to resolve the differences during a series of meeting held in Khartoum last year.

The Nuba Mountains lie in one of Sudan’s special "transitional" areas, identified under the 2005 deal. Although currently administratively part of northern Sudan the region was promised greater autonomy under the peace deal.

Members of the many Nuba tribes, citing marginalisation by Khartoum, had joined the SPLM during the civil war.

    That shows that SPLM has adapted high professional practising democracy in its institutions where leaders can be removed and installed peacefully.

    SPLM’ S. Kordofan’s regional body has formulated codes of conduct and ethic that should be followed by other counter-parts in Sudan except deformed NIF party.

    Mr Kodi will take a good break, revive and prepare himself for his next chance for leadership.
