A group called its self "Reform Stream" issued a statement on Wednesday blaming the group chairman Tijani Al-Sissi to excluding the other members from the decision making process.

The statement, which is signed by Ismail Omer Idriss, said that such behaviour harms the DDPD implementation and threatened to take tough action against Sissi if he fails to take the necessary measures to remediate the situation with in 75 hours.

Reached by Sudan Tribune, JEM spokesperson, Ahmed Fadel, accused the secretary general Bahar Idriss Abu Garda who is also heath minister in the federal government of backing this faction.

Fadel said this faction is fabricated and lacks objectivity, adding it is supported by the Federal Minister of Health, Bahr Idriss Abu Garda, to destabilise the movement.

During the peace process in Doha, Idriss was the deputy secretary for the negotiation affairs.

LJM, which is the main signatory of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) in July 2011, is formed from splinter factions from the two main rebel groups in Darfur, as its name indicates.

The group leader Al-Sissi, who chairs the Darfur Regional Authority was not part of Darfur armed groups. However as a former governor of Darfur region he had been approached to preside the group and federate its factions.

However during the peace talks and after the signing of the peace agreement some members quitted the movement and rejoined rebel groups like Ahmed Abdel-Shafi, Abdallah Mursal and Mahgoub Hussein.
