President Omer Hassan Al-Bashir abolished West Darfur state in August 2005, and established the greater South Kordofan while some of its territory was affected to North Kordofan state.

The measure was part of the provisions of a protocol related to the resolution of the conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile state encompassed in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of January 2005 between the Sudanese government and the former South Sudanese rebels SPLM.

Speaking during the inauguration of Najma (star) oil fields in the western part of South Kordofan state Ali Osman Taha announce that the government has finalized the preparations to reestablish the West Kordofan state during the 57th anniversary of the independence, next January.

The ruling National Congress Party included the reinstatement of West Kordofan state among its electoral pledges for the elections of South Kordofan governor in May 2011. Since, a commission was set up to prepare the separation of the two states.

The West Kordofan is the home of Misseriya tribe and where are located the oil fields in the current South Kordofan.

During the first months of conflict in South Kordofan, some foreign envoys pressed Khartoum to re-divide South Kordofan into two states and to appoint the SPLM-N candidate Abdel Aziz Al-Hilu in South Kordofan while Ahmed Haroun be appointed governor of West Kordofan, before to hold a popular consultation there.

The disputed area of Abyei is also part of West Kordofan state.

The African Union mediation proposed last November to hold a referendum on the fate of Abyei next October but said only the Ngok Dinka and the Misseriya residing there can participate.

Khartoum rejected the proposal despite its endorsement by the African Union Peace and Security Council. The issue is be debated next January by the head of states members of this institution.

    Repartition here means a lot. The People of Nuba are Africans - are South Sudanese brothers. The law demands that they are transferred to South Sudan with their land after their popular consultations. Please let the popular consultation take place as stipulated in 2005 Peace Agreement other than your nonsense repartition or whatever. ooooops

            NS, Why are you so defensive about UN helicopter? It sound like it’s not a UN helicopter after all. If it’s really a UN helicopter; don’t you think the UN will be the first one to report it? If South Sudanese are way smarter than you to break away with over 75% of entire Sudan wealth; don’t you think; they should know the different between SAF and UN helicopter?

      You fagot North Sudanese. Divide and rule is archaiv tactic. It is not going to work because unite and rule is empirically proven to sustain a durable and peaceful existence of a state. Your corrupt officials are too old to carry on now as many coups are loooooming. Time for NCP to get lost. Your fag pres is dying too.

      Dear Khartoum thugs,
      Who gave you the patent to divide the land where you’re just visitors?...continue dividing it even into a hundred plus, what I know about the state is that it’s called Nuba Mts state, rather than being North/South/West Kordufan.

        More oil fields will soon join the oil cycle production such as Hadida, Al-Rawat (in Kostei), Sharif, etc. We’ll come out of this bottle neck without south oil, let the south go and search for another pipeline to export its oil and find financial source than ours to pay salaries for its SPLA/M and feed their hungry mouths!

            If this is a true Project of upgrading the so called Al-Rowsiri Damn then you don’t need to celebrate yet, this will be another Panthou (Heglig) destruction. Believed it or not, you will be crying with shock instead of celebrating, just wait for decisively respond from the Mightiest SPLA/N.

                      Northern Sudanese,
                      You obviously don;t live in Khartoum as if you did you would know about the number of gay men who live here and they are not South Sudanese.
                      There are none so blind as those who don;t want to see.
                      Next you will be saying that there are no prostitutes in N Sudan or in your mind if there are they are not from N Sudan.
                      You obviously lead a very sheltered and naive life..

                in Islam, gay men are unrecognized and they get hanged specially in Saudi Arabia and Iran. now your saying our ancestors were gays? seriously dude, your full of funny imagination that has got nothing to do with the subject here.
                no wonder that there is nothing big built in south sudan or why your people are filling US and Australian prisons. your nothing but a dark low life insect
