April 19, 2010 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) accused today its peace partner, the National Congress Party of troop building in the Blue Nile Stat ahead of results there.

The Blue Nile with Southern Kordofan state are supposed to have a special statue in accordance of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement allowing them to have more autonomy after popular consultations that should take place there.

The SPLM agents in the region say the withdrawn candidate, Yasir Arman, has won the majority of the votes in the Blue Nile however they fear that the NCP may manipulate the results during the counting operation to declare its candidate winner in the state.

"The information we have is that there is a buildup" in the state, said Arman during a press conference held in Khartoum today. The NCP "is sending military forces and we are cautious" he added.

The SPLM top official in northern Sudan also accused the president Omer Al-Bashir of preparing to rig the results of the electoral process for the post of governor in Blue Nile State where the incumbent Malik Aggar is the SPLM candidate.

"This is a red line," he said; adding "If the election is rigged, the SPLM leadership will have to meet and assess the situation to determine what type of step to take".

The SPLM Northern Sudan decided to not participate in the elections and pulled out its candidate for legislative and gubernatorial elections. The difficult decision had been criticized by the NCP but also some SPLM leading members including Aggar who considers he has a chance to maintain control of the governor’s position.

A Sudanese police source justified the increasing presence of security forces in the Blue Nile by saying these forces are part of a security plan to prevent troubles in the different part of the country.

"These are ordinary measures" he told Reuters.

Also Senior NCP member Rabie Abdelati said: "The early figures show that the NCP will get the victory in Blue Nile. Yasir Arman knows this and this is why he is making these falsehoods."

      The motive behind Mr. Arman’s decision to withdrew hmself from the election is his personal decision, and could not be blame on other people. Yasir was well aware that he is not capable of not winning the election. Men of dog, this stay in you hole and quit making unstable claims. No one care of the what you think and Goss is not spell as gose like you put it. Please visit your ESL teacher to instruct you on how to constuct your sentences. This forum is not a place for practicing your English Man of moron.

        Shut up you hyena called Yasser Aram,

        Why did you cowardly withdraw from the presidential race in the first place?

        Your motive is to stir up trouble by exaggerating simple security matters.

        You have realized that you are loaded in sinking ship and start to cry wolf.

        You are a coward and shame to SPLM by abruptly withdrawing because of fear. Now you are destroying the SPLM Northern Sector. Salvatore Kiir should strip you of your position and hand over the SPLM to Malik Agar in the North.

        You are a failure and non-strategist in thinking. Why boarding a sinking ship?

          Stop smearing Araman you son of …… you always prove to the readers of Sudantribune that your are empty vessel needs to be filled. How could you always trash a man who has spent half of his life fight for freedom and justices for marginalized people? You always use an ill argument that does not have any merits to it in defending a criminal, and fugitive, Al-Bashier. you always argue let us support al-Bashier and hold him accountable for CPA. Who told you a liar, deceiver, and criminal has creditability. Al-Bashier is not a man of the word, and he will not be a man of the word. Do you have any idea why Al-basier has not walked away from CPA? it is not because of international community because it has no any leverage on his regime. Simply has not done so because he knows very well doing so means committing suicide. Our brave men and women in uniform will eat him alive. By the way did you asked your uncle how Al-Bashier humiliated him when he knew your uncle was powerless when he signed so-called KPA. I wish you were in Khartoum to see how the same Al-Bashier you are defending now treated your uncle back then. I will not be exaggerating if I told you that used to bow out of fear in front of Al-Bashier. simply put it this way, he way Al-Bashier play boy. My suggestion to you is that do a background research on a man, and one will be of a valuable reference other than your uncle.

    Ncp Must know that any intimidation to greater Blue Nile, greater Nuba mountaing will escalate the war because those states are like Warrap, Jonglei, Rumbek, NBG, WBG,Abyei,and greater Counties of Dinka Ngok that mixed in less SPLM States. Caution!
