In a statement issued late on Wednesday night in Khartoum, Changson said they learnt that Thomas Peter Okacb, Chanjok Neilak Oraj, Simon Otiek Ayul and Zakariya Paulino Oyai conducted "illegal meetings" on 2 and 3 December with Lam Akol, the leader of National Democratic Movement (NCM) to form a new faction of his party, the FDP.

"This is the violation of the party principles and norms," he said.

"Therefore, the Leadership decided to terminate their membership from FDP/SSAF with effect from 04th December 2018," he further stressed.

On Friday 30 November, an SSOA faction announced the election of Peter Gatdet as a new leader of the opposition umbrella replacing Changson who had been elected in February 2018. They pointed that the alliance charter established a rotating presidency with the election of a new chair every six months.

However, on 4 December, Changson and his supporters within the SSOA decided to suspend the Peter Gatdet election and keeping him at the head of the alliance. The other faction rejected the suspension of the election creating two organizations with two leaders.

    I tell you guys. It must be a leader who was born to rule or no one else. Did you forget when someone said on this forum that “ it’s either us or we run this country down”? We are not going to have a great nation unless we have three regions and federal Government. Otherwise we are doomed for another 700 years
