August 19, 2009 (JUBA) —Sudan’s dominant National Congress Party (NCP) and Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) signed an accord today regarding the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

The agreement was brokered by the US Special Envoy to Sudan Scott Gration who created the tripartite commission since last June to review and resolve outstanding issues in the 2005 peace agreement between North and South.

The US state department said that today’s agreement “commits the NCP and SPLM to a series of timed benchmarks for implementing key aspects of the CPA, including border demarcation and election preparation”.

The head of the US bureau at the Sudanese foreign ministry Nasr Al-Deen Wali told the state news agency (SUNA) that the issues of referendum and the census remain outstanding and further discussions on them will commence during the second week of September.

The London based Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper quoting informed sources that attended the Juba meetings said that the NCP stuck to its insistence that the census results are to be used to determine the geographical constituencies for the purposes of the upcoming 2010 elections.

The SPLM wants the geographical constituencies to be based on the 1956 census percentages alleging that the 2008 census results were “rigged” understating the population of the South and overstating that of Darfur.

According to the newspaper, the SPLM proposed alternatives all of which were rejected by the NCP.

This month the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) Chief Electoral Affairs Officer Ray Kennedy suggested that the SPLM position would delay elections.

“What I would say is that we do face a very tight timeframe. Anything that potentially delays any part of that timeframe could have an impact on when the elections are held,” Kennedy said.

The two sides also could not reach an agreement on the referendum law which is crucial for the 2011 self determination process by Southerners.

Among the key sticking points is the percentage of votes required in the referendum to declare it favoring independence, the population allowed to vote, determining the post-referendum process and the share of Sudan’s debts the South would carry with it if it secedes.

The NCP is pushing for a 75% ‘Yes’ vote for South Sudan to be allowed to secede, something the SPLM rejects.

Furthermore, the SPLM rejects the participation of Southerners living outside the South in the referendum.

In a testimony before US lawmakers, Gration expressed worry that skipping the already delayed 2010 national elections may make it very difficult to hold credible referendum in Abyei and South Sudan in 2011.

    Due to the reluctancy of NIF to particepate maturely with the SPLM with the implementation of some key CPA aspects, the SPLM might be limitied to the only choice of declaring the independence, of the South in 2011. My friend, the agent of NIF, Mr. Oshay will not like this, but that is the reality at hand, I suggest he uses his senses to the fullest.

      The government of Kiir Mayardit is the weakest government in the history of our great nation. President Kiir always talks softly to please all our enemies by his well known slogan of " We are not going back to War". The government of Sudan is not in position right now to wage any war even if it is force to go to war. With the war in Darfur,and the call from International court to arrest president Bashiir, SPLM should be in strongest position to take over Sudan and transform it. SPLM need to work with other opposition political parties to topple National Islamic Front. The government of South Sudan should not always be intimidated by the National Congress while it (NCP a.k.a NIF)has no military or political might at this time. We all Sudanese people need to stand up and press the failed govenment of South Sudan to do more for all Sudanese people other than only thinking about referendum of South. We need to get togather and unite the country under SPLM!!!

        Hey Mr Major Deng,

        Thank you so much for your comment. This is what I was been complaining since the SPLM/SPLA started accusing the ICC on the arrestment or indictment of Omar Bashir. I do have a capability of saying that the SPLM/SPLA associates leaders of Southern Sudan are all feeble to down play their political strategies very wisely. If the SPLM/SPLA leaders on the other hand were been working for the interest of their Southern Sudanese people, they could give a firm support to the ICC instead of ignoring the ICC charges. If they respected the ICC in that way, then I hope they could already have win or defeated the Northern Sudanese Government.

        Why I said that? Because the SPLM/SPLA loss their political on Darfurian people and they are supposed in order to play a cool-confederation with Darfurian people although we know that Darfurian people were our first enemies. Don’t you believe that if SPLM/SPLA cooperated with Darfurian people, Nubian people and Eastern Blue people-Uduk of Maliik Agaar, the Arab in Northern Sudan will have no foundation and at the same time, they will not carried any war. But, the Southern Sudanese leaders of the SPLM/SPLA are forgotten and they thought that the small budget which the receives from Khartoum Government is the end of the war. Arabs from the Northern Sudan are fully weak and weak, but the SPLM/SPLA is an agent which is reinforcing the Khartoum Government to have voice, otherwise Khartoum Government could have succumbed its authority to the SPLM/SPLA.

        It is a big shame to our Southern Sudanese leaders if the always rely themselves on Omar Bashir. Last three weeks ago when the Summit Meeting was conducted in Uganda, the SPLM/SPLA send a warning letter to the President of Uganda-Yoweri Museveni. According to Mr Gier Chuang, who was send by the SPLM authority in Juba to give the letter to Mr Yoweri Museveni, he explained to Mr Yoweri Museveni that the content of the letter is to prevent Omar Bashir from being arrested by the ICC. What kind of an absurd political philosophy is that? If Omar Bashir was the one whom the Southern Sudanese expected to bring peace and innovation to Southern Sudan, then why Southern Sudanese people jeopardized themselves and fought with Khartoum Government for 22 years instead of kneeling or relinquishing ourselves to Mr Omar Bashir? I’m really sorry and sorry indeed and the only thing that I’m worried about it, is the life of the Southern Sudanese people who sacrifice themselves for the wrong people who think that they are the righteous leaders who can fight with Khartoum Government, but in reality they are naive and lack of fundemental ideologies. MR MAJOR DENG, you are totally right and your comment serve purpose. Don’t afraid for you are a liberator of your people of Southern Sudan. Thank you and I love your comment.

    Mr: Scott Gration, You better back into fine line because Khartoum is not truthworthy.
    Another thing is, what is the 75% vote to allow the south to secede? That is more then 2/3 of the vote. That is moronic atlest somebody from the North who have the western knowledge of running the government to explain this or another episode of example why we refuse the unity with the north. It is too complicated right, wait until 2011 when nothing has been achieved. We will declare the secession during the day light. The Arabs( Khartoumers) are the worst people on earth to deal with. They are good at begging and hard to understand the plain language that we are no longer brothers or one country. We are a neighboring countries. If you feel we can have a bilateral agreement between our countries,then we hear it but it is too early for us to lend you hand at this hour.
    We are also not fond of the 2010 election whether there will be or there will not be, it doesn’t bother us. Ooooh man, our booth for referendum in 2011

          It is good to practice your English as we all know that this site become a learning centre. But you should know the consequencies of the the war you are fueling otherwise your ass will be in Ugandan’s farms again.

          I thought you guys can appreciated the sacrifices to the people of Southern Sudan by Dinka, Murle, Shilluk and few who were committed from Nuer community. When are you going to stop your well known song in Southern Sudan that this this ’’problem was brought by Dinka’’ during our 21 years of struggle.

          Mr. John Mat if it was not because of above mentions tribes then Southern Sudan would have been a farms for Northern Sudanese and their brothers from Egpt as they always have a plans for that!!!!

          Can you watch your grandmothers in the YouTube when they becomed the BULLS of the Land entering Juba after 2005 peace deal between SPLM/A and NCP/NIF in Khartoum and you will see how excited they were!!!

          Shame on you weak heart people who always claimed to be Ugandans if things are really bad. The CPA invited guests like you sholuld know that the whole Dinka community is not employed by Government of Southern Sudan neither the officials in the government are all from Dinka tribe.

          But the wisemen should blamed the SPLM leadership for anything went wrong this time rather Dinka community

              TO John Mat or J. Mat,

              Thank you for abusive comments against Dinka through out the article pages. Your tribal hatred against Dinka is well known by Dinka people not just 2011 you are dreaming for but you should know that it is not simple to kill a snake.

              I couldn’t understand when you called Big BULLs of Southern Sudan as coward. You better to double check the word corwad than used it wrongly.

              Mr J Mat I don’t mind which tribe you come from but you must be another traitor within the South. The CPA invited guest like you should be allows to cry because of the Goss money but you failed to know that the whole Dinka community is not employed by Goss.

              Keep instigate the war but should know the consequencies as you did when you stab the liberators at the back while they were engaged in liberating you coward from the Jallaba.

              The Weak heart people like you are always setting this great nation anti-clockwise.

        It’s the dirty game of politics in Sudan.Whoever thought that,NCP/NIF will be in New-Sudan shoes???11Adawah....

        As i said yesterday that we are a SudaneseP eople without borders,which means;as a reality we are not as one"People-Nation/Country"despite the so-called borders demarcation. So the so called New-Sudan Liberators "SPLM/A"failed to maintain their promise to all our fallen heroes that,they will reshape Sudan according to a new values and principles,that will restore the dignity of all morganalized people of Sudan,and South-Sudanese in particular.But we witness today that,all our leaders from both sides,shown they have nothing to achieve without a foregin interfering or guidance,such as the Obama’ Special Envoy’s.

        Today’s new CPA bloodline’"The Commitment Agreement of Implimentation of CPA" proves the curse of obvious lack of PATRIOTISM by SPLM/A cadres,and astonishingly/oppositely; shows the zealousness of NCP/NIF towards; The One United Sudan with all the formalities of the regime change,that agreed upon in the CPA protocols.

        The funny part of this agreement,is the involvement of Mr.Malik Agar of BlueNile State.Does he relize the impact of what SPLM/A stand against the unity of Sudan,contrary to the last SPLM Convention resolutions!!???by making BlueNile-Nuba Mountain-EastSudan and foremostly South Sudan region’s secession attempt impossible.....

        It’s a betraial role played perfectly to appease Uncle Sam,or to kiss U.S.A’s @$$.

        Now i am very concerned about my foregin born children,who are not carrying any other nationality to secure their future.

        Please,tell me fellow Southerners,do you see any bright future to our coming generations,and how can i convince my community members to return back from diaspora to motherland"Soth-Sudan"under such curcomstances???

        Ohhhh God,please forbid the the unrest of our fallen heroes in their graves,Amen

          Brother Julius, retrospect our revolutions history, 1955, 1972 and 1983 you will see that our movements have fighting for the following points:-

          1-Unity of Sudan, which demonstrated through calling for a democratic and decentralized government in Sudan, that if succeeded, would put a closure for marginalization which Non-Arab Sudan citizens have been experiencing since the Independence of the Sudan in 1956.

          2- Freedom of religion and belief, while the Muslim Arabs in the north imposing Islamic Sharia as origin of legislation for laws through out the Sudan, the South was calling for a governing system similar to secularism which if succeeded insures the rights of all Sudanese to share in the government without prejudicing to certain religion group.

          3- Admitting the reality that Sudan is a Multi-Racial Nation, while Arabs on the north worked hard to portrait Sudan as Arab predominant country, ignoring the vast culture diversity in Sudan, Southerners revolutions focused on recognition of all the different races forming Sudan.

          A lot of souls have been lost for such aspirations, now we realized that our efforts to change the stiffen minds in Khartoum has failed, now we have two choices, wither to live in constant conflicts, misery and suffering or we can put a final resolution to our differences, self-determination was stipulated on the CPA as the final and split line for our chronic domestic conflicts.

          I understand your concerns, but the truth is, Sudan will never have peace as Khartoum is insisting to marginalize non-Arab or Muslims, we are tired of killing each other, we are tired of being scornful of others, secession of the South will put an end to all Sudanese suffering, we have been fighting for more than 50 years for the unity of Sudan… now,let us give other alternatives a chance, by all means war has to stop in Sudan.
          Thanks you and may God blessing sustain you and your dear one.

      SPLM failed to tackle foreseeable risks when it accepted census to be carried out in the South while outstanding issues weren’t resolved ethnicity and religion which are the fundamental archetypes of conflict between and the North.
      Having crudely accepted the census to go ahead, they unwittingly let their votes being counted in Khartoum instead of let ting their votes counted in the South with the scrutiny of both South and North and International observers. After this they can only send the counted votes for national census. This would have avoided any possible rigging from the widely known untrusted regime.

      NCP does not care about the time being wasted because it is South who needs things to be held on time so that crucial referendum is held on time. The NCP will continue to drag its feet claiming that census’s results are accurate because the census itself was conducted in presence of international observers. But ironically, observers weren’t store keepers to know what would happen nightly.

      Hence, I think SPLM should sit and think meticulously on how to timely handle these elections which are paradoxically a gateway to referendum.

          It’s big risk to both South and North Sudan if parties disagreed on census results and referendum law for the South to choose either to be independent state or unity Sudan. Khartoum government must to know that, the current leadership of SPLM is not the same with Anyany I leadership they were cheated. The fact should remain as South Sudan will be separate country from old Sudan since there is disorder in NCP regime. I concur with SPLM party to dishonesty any wrong law want to be brought up by Khartoum terrorists regime who act in evil manner.

        Today, U.S. Special Envoy to Sudan Scott Gration witnessed the initialing of a bilateral agreement in Juba, Southern Sudan, between representatives of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) and the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) on advancing implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).

        General Gration served as a facilitator and mediator in discussions between the two parties over the past three months as they worked through outstanding and unimplemented portions of the CPA.

        The agreement initialed today, which will be forwarded to Sudan’s Presidency for final ratification, commits the NCP and SPLM to a series of timed benchmarks for implementing key aspects of the CPA, including border demarcation and election preparation.

        Special Envoy Gration served as a witness to the initialing of this Agreement by the two parties in his capacity as mediator, but the United States is not a party to this Agreement.End of thre press release.

        Hey Guys watch out the last paragraph from the press released from USA Embassy in Khartoum. All the mess done by what so called Gration in Darfur and South Sudan; has nothing to do with Obama Adminstration as I can understand from the statement. But I think.no more than trying his personal luck to cool down the situations in Sudan; hoping that, he might be rewarded in case of the sucess happen. So my advice to SPLM/A and Darfuri so called fragiled movemnt to watch out without being fooled like Mini Minawi.

        Minawi was pushed by Zoleck to signed the DAP, and when Zoleck was fired, he was left alone stranded in Khartoum. You know when Mini forces were killed in Khartoum he cried like a child alone very sadly , no one shed tears with him.
        My believe is that all Human are equal in thinking but the only different is that some peoples’ thinking is institutional and of some others’ is individual. So lets watch and wait.

            Thanks to those who have challenges this MR, John Mat.
            He is himself a narrow mind by all account and I don’t think such a people in Southern Sudanese have learn anythings good yet. I also thank, the above mention recently which it reminder John Mat to look at the You Tube Website video about the SPLA/SPLM Struggle special at the time when the SPLA was told to make entering in to Juba after the Peace deal and if this such historical event does not make him happy then, he is not a Southerner guy otherwise, John Mat must have to say the word sorry for his comment abusing Dinka Tribe perhaps, we are not going to accept that, kind negative attitude.

            Overall,I do think the braking on the Dinkas bravers will not make him educated person and so I real blame his innate mind and his parents who raise him same bad attitudes, but as so far as I know if you dislike Dinka Tribe probably you will have no room in Sudan geneal.
