Background

This background on the Just Peace Forum (JPF) is taken from The Sudanese press after separation – Contested identities of journalism. MICT 2012, Page 43.

The Just Peace Forum (JPF) is a radically Islamist and increasingly autonomous splinter party of the ruling NCP. It appeared on the political stage as a vociferous critic of the CPA soon after its signing by the NCP and the SPLM in 2005. It is headed by Al Tayeb Mustafa, a veteran NCP figure and President Bashir’s maternal uncle. Its main forum is the best-selling daily paper Intibaha, which is notorious for its aggressive rhetoric. The JPF advocated for the partition of Sudan on the grounds that north and south constitute irreconcilable poles – racially, religiously, culturally and politically – and voiced the fear that the SPLM might eventually dominate the country. Once South Sudan seceded, JPF undertook the expulsion of the remnant SPLM in (north) Sudan and called for the immediate ban of the party in the country. Today it agitates for the enforcement of strict Sharia in the country, a military solution for the conflicts in South Kordofan and the Blue Nile and the severing of all ties with South Sudan. It championed the campaign against the June 2011 framework signed with the SPLM in (north) Sudan and is currently leading a fierce campaign against the March 2012 agreement on the status of nationals in the other state, signed by Sudan and South Sudan in Addis Ababa.
