January 19, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – The party of General Omar Al-Bashir today announced candidates to stand for the governorships of nine states of South Sudan. At the headquarters of the National Congress Party in Khartoum, lists were announced for the party’s candidates for the Southern governorships as well as legislative seats.

The NCP will contest in South Sudan’s constituencies for the National Assembly and the South Sudan Legislative Assembly. It will later announce its candidate for the presidency of South Sudan. The party will have to compete with the dominant party of the semi-autonomous Southern region, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM).

    Names full of arabs’ names won’t make any headways in south. Let them come and see how they will campaign. Shame on them, hope Abdalla Deng will be in the team. Do they know where their constituencies are in south sudan. I doubt!

          Bravo Dr. Riek Gai Kok (akul sawa),

          The worst nightmare for salva kiir is coming. Dr. Riek Gai Kok is soon to be announced by NCP as its candidate to take over the GOSS presidency.

          The incompetent, tribalist and corrupt Kiir of "akul baraw" group is in trouble as the "akul sawa" group of Dr. Riek Gai Kok will remove him soon.

    NCP is running out of words.
    Who appoint those NCP candidates to contest the governorship in the South.
    This NCP as enemy party tried harder to make confussion and i think SPLM will reject our appointees. Let them come to the South and then they will contest.
    The South governorship is for the entire country,but for the South why Ncp choose this governors. are those NCP sick or what?

    All those people being announced by Omar Hussein Bashir for candidates to stand for the governorships of the nine States of Southern Sudan are all from Nuer tribe and Equatorian. No doubt completely.

        Hey Mr Majang,

        You are right my dear even if you said that I have a lack of Education. In fact, lack of Education doesn’t matter to me because I have my own native language which is Dinka language. But for you, I know that you are a doctor because when Riak Machar Teny receive a PhD Degree, all Nuer people became Doctors. It is still true that most of the names appeared as Omar Bashir made announcements for the candidates to stand for governorships in Southern Sudan are all Nuer names and Equatorian.

        Whatever Nilotic names you talking about, check it for yourself. I know Nuer people myself very well. When people move forward, they go backward.

      Please don’t bark against Nuer.
      Pick out whom do you suspect to be Nuer. Your Poor King will exectly will be contested by Nuer which will win the elcetion and push your Poor Kiir away.

        Peter Pal,

        The only good leaders are Taban Deng Gai, Hoth Mai, and Bol Kong.
        The rest are traitors.

        Hey Mr Peter Pal,

        Don’t you know that Nuer Generals like Gai Tut, Maliiny Kawaii, Paulino Matiip Nhial, Gordon Kong, Riak Machar Teny, Tanginya, Riak Gai and many others Nuer Generals whose names are not listed here tried very hard to dethrone the SPLM/SPLA party since 1983, but still they didn’t achieve anything in their attempt? So, do you think that this is time Nuer can do anything to push away Salva Kiir?

        My friend, you don’t know exactly what you are talking about. Although you think that Salva Kiir is poor, it is the right of the SPLM/SPLA to choose the right person who can fit in suits of leadership rather than appointing a "second-hand minded Nuer" who just keep fluctuating his mind from place to place.

        After all, it is good to said that you will contest it by yourself instead of generalizing the whole Nuer.

    Good to see some changes ont he SPLM tickets for governorship, but governor Kuol Manyang of Jongolie who have not been changed, he should really do more work for that state, he has to reduce tribal fighting, imporve security and bring tangeable development. People do not want to see what happened last year when almost one thausand civilians were killed in Jongoloie state alone, good luck to him and well done to the rest of the south sudan nominees.

Taban is most corrupted Governor in South Sudan, and he will be vote out without any objection..

    I know also people of Unity state will not vote for the NCP Guy. They will vote for Rev. James Kuong Ninrew the independent candidate in Unity state. Congratulation James, You are next Unity state Governor believe me. Unity state citizens fed up of Taban Deng and his corruption.

    JAMES KUONG NINREW OYEEEEEEEEEEEE

    UNITY STATE CITIZENS OYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    WE THE CITIZENS OF UNITY STATE WE WIL TEACH THOSE PAGAN, TABAN AND KIIR A LESSON DURING ELECTION. WE WILL NOT VOTE FOR THEM AT ALL BECAUSE THEY ARE THE PEOPLE WHO PLAYINY WITH CITIZENS.

        Hi Guys

        the names of NCP candidates just sound like ’matermer alwathon’ names. They sound very absurd, very strange, very redicule to my ears. I doubt they will ever come compaign in our Country South Sudan.

      RAAN NAATH,

      Has James Kuong Nirew been accepted to run as independent candidate by National Election Commission?

      If he has or will be accepted, then for sure Taban is out.

      Guys I want to tell you the truth.
      Taban is hated for one thing and one thing only: he is against people whom he think are after him. For him to be accepted he need to be an open and caring without any opposition of those who want to challenge him. He needs to be open-minded and wllcome ideas.

      A word of caution: if James is not running, then I advise all unity citizen to elect Taban other than an NCP candidate.

    Why why why?

    Clement Wani again appeared in the Candidacy Table, Equatorians might had gone mad by nominating Mr. Tribalist Wani, a man who ignited war amongst his speaking Tribes. This man up to now is still a Military General in Old Sudan Army Force hiding his real being and pretended to be SPLA. Where are the Guns given to him by Albasher? He Should surrender all these Guns either to NCP or SPLA.
