NCP and SPLM pledge to form Sudan’s next government


April 20, 2010 (JUBA) – Sudan’s partners in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), which ended 21 years of North-South armed conflict five years ago, have agreed to accept the election results at all levels in the country and pledged to jointly form the next government.

During a meeting held on Tuesday in Juba between the chairperson of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), Salva Kiir Mayardit and the deputy chairperson of the National Congress Party (NCP), Ali Osman Mohamed Taha, the two leaders pledged to accept the results at all levels despite any complaints from parties.

The Juba meeting between Kiir and Taha also discussed the way forward in the expected formation of the next elected Government of National Unity with participation or membership of the two parties.

They also expressed the need for immediate resumption of dialogue on implementation of the other remaining outstanding issues in the CPA following the formation of the new government.

The incumbent President Omer Hassan al-Bashir is expected to remain the President of the Republic while Salva Kiir is expected to continue as First Vice President of the Republic and President of the semi-autonomous Government of Southern Sudan.

Observers say that the agreement between the two respective ruling parties in the North and South, committing themselves to acceptance of the results before they are officially released, signifies a giant step towards maintaining the status quo.

The meeting was also joined by the former SPLM presidential candidate and Deputy Secretary General for Northern Sector and withdrawn candidate for the Sudanese presidency, Yasir Saeed Arman and the party’s Secretary General, Pagan Amum, who also arrived to Juba from Khartoum on Tuesday.

Earlier, Amum and Arman presented a complaint on what they said was indication of serious rigging of elections by NCP in Southern Blue Nile state.

Yasir Arman yesterday accused the NCP of building up troops in Blue Nile state in what he termed as an attempt to rig the elections’ result there.

A delegation from the National Elections Commission (NEC) led by Mukhtar Alasam arrived today in Blue Nile to inspect vote counting after reports of tensions in the State after reports about troop buildup and NCP efforts to rig the results of the region where SPLM’s Malik Aggar is widely believed winning the race.

According to the results reported by the SPLM agents, Malik is given winner with huge difference of votes however; some media reputed to be pro-northern Sudan ruling party indicated that NCP candidate Farah Al-Aggar is leading the preliminary election results against his SPLM opponent, Malik Agar.

Following a meeting with the NEC delegation, the incumbent governor Malik Aggar reiterated his confidence on the state election committee. He also pointed to a number of irregularities that took place in some localities.

Malik further announced that he will accept the elections results regardless of who wins the governorship post. He urged to expedite the counting of the results to avoid tensions that might go on after the proclamation of the result under the current security situation.

The NCP candidate in the Blue Nile had slammed Arman’s statements over electoral fraud describing it as political blackmailing. While the NEC Chairman of the Elections Security Committee, Lieutenant General Abdulla Al Hardalo, stated that the date for announcing the results is not determined yet.

In a statement issued Tuesday evening, Malik appealed to all citizens and political parties to accept the elections results, whatever the outcome may be and pledged in his capacity as the current Governor to provide security to all and protection to citizen’s property.

The SPLM Northern Sector boycotted the recent elections in most states of Northern Sudan with the exception of Southern Blue Nile and Southern Kordofan, which participated.

A number of political parties from both northern and southern Sudan have expressed their dissatisfaction to the electoral process, saying they would not recognize the results.

    Salvatore Kiir is forming a high level committee to investigate Pagan Amum and Yasser Aram over their recent indiscipline and rebellion against the leadership and decision of the Political Bureau to hold elections in the North.

    The SPLM spokesman and Pagan/Arman’s mouthpiece, Yien Matthew Chol, is reported to have already been dismissed from his position by Salvatore Kiir over his recorded remarks insulting Kiir as illiterate and dump leader.

    Stay tuned as both Pagan and Yasser will be dismissed and follow the same fate soon.......

    Please check it out with people in SPLM secretariat there in Juba. I have received this very reliable information from somebody INSIDE the SPLM secretariat there in Juba.

    The two communist boys were called to report themselves to Juba and will soon be investigated and possibly dismissed.

    SPLM oyeee.........

    Discipline in the party oyeeee.......

    Independence of South Sudan oyeee.......

      Bravo NCP and SPLM,

      Let the partnership and implementation of the CPA continue until after referendum is conducted.

      The northern opposition hyenas who boycotted the elections should be left in the cold.

      They boarded a sinking ship and must remain underneath the ocean for the next five years.

      I pity the two shallow minded communist boys in the SPLM (Pagan Amum and Yasser Aram) for boarding the sinking ship.

      CPA oyeee........

        Mabor Adut,

        Were you sleeping when Pagan Amum and Yasser Arman contradicted the chairman and his deputies and told northern sector not to participate in the elections despite politburo resolution calling on them to participate?

        Common ya sleepy learner! You are welcome, I will be ready to testify on this well known public issue. Mark my words, Pagan and Aram will soon be out.

        Have you checked with the secretariat there in Juba to see if their spokesman, Yien Matthew Chol is still working or not?

      Yes, in Khartoum confirmation was that Yen Mathew was fired, Al-intib Arabic Local News Paper quoted Kir say that: ( South is for Southerners Mr. Yasir Arman should not represent them) So this mean that the fate of Mr. pagan and Mr.yasir is unknown may be would be fired or given terrible sanction.

      Gossip: Three men , Pagan, Yasir and their youngest Fellow ate almost 2 millions just during this Election time.

        Thanks for the confirmation!

        I have also heard that the two communists boys (Pagan and Aram) have stolen millions of money which was meant for the boycotted elections in the Northern sector.

        Speculations are that Yasser Aram wants to form another party in Khartoum while Pagan Amum is transporting his family members to USA and may sneak out to America any time.

        Stay tuned....

      to Getwich or Gatwoman

      zip up your stinky mouth GetWih, dog barks when its master attack, all your masters will face criminal court, relax and sit back, for the day of judgement is coming.

      " indiscipline and rebellion" ? your uncle should be in jail for betraying SPLA over some $$$$ cash $$$$$ money hungry idiot.

      this was under counter deal between some idiot folks within SPLA to let Omer stay in power and come back to form new government of national unity.

      Shame on you Kiir, you dishonor the late Dr. John Garag the man of faith and vision, stop submission to criminal Omer al Bashir. I don’t blame you, that’s all Machar fulse.

      "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

      I praised Dr. John Garag, God bless his soul, he stood up at time of challenge and controversy.

      Curse on you men of submission and soft minded, as MKL said and I quotes "Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

      Kuminyandi (Dinka Boy in opposition),

      You are finished in your sinking camp. Kiir/Dr. Machar and Bashir/Taha alliance will be there until the referendum is conducted.

      If not, then the two ruling leaderships will handle it either with ballot or bullet.

      Opposition parties leaders are useless folks...

    Spineless Kiir and his traitor deputy have been crying foul that the NCP was rigging the elections and now they are quick to accept the results? What a bunch of lying cowards. This goes to prove that there was no reason to withdraw SPLM presidential candidate CDE Arman after all. The issue of rigging was just a pretext to enforce an secret agreement between the NCP and SPLM to keep things as they are and not change the political landscape.

    SPLM has lost the moral standing it once enjoyed among Sudanese people. It is now seen as just a junior partner willing to throw its moral obligations away in return for worthless alliance with NCP.

    Talk about the decay of once glorious SPLM.

      This is not maintaining of the status que, this is maintaining peace and confidence and complete and FULL implementation of the CPA.This the way towards building a constructive partenership towards prosperity with or without secession.This is the time discuss and solve any outstanding problem friendly and amicably and not emmotionally or belligrentely.

      I understand that many people are looking forward to have an independent state, this will be most welcomed if this is the wish of the people of south Sudan.However secession is not an easy decision as it seems.This will need deep and quite delibration without emotions.

      Under all circumstances the referundum should be held in it’s due time , it should be free and fair and must be fully respected!

        your behaviors showed that you have big skull with a little brain that why you lack of reasoning. Salva Kiir is begiliant and he wanted to findout what activities are conducted by northerners than dealing with Amum and Arman. Those two guys you against are the heart core of the SPLA/SPM than your primitive uncles.

          The formula is simple South for SPLM and North for NCP and no referendum!

          Is this what we want as the people of Southern Sudan?

          Another issue is that Arman and Pagan are on the way to form their own political parties?

            Flora Tong,

            I argued you should not lit the fire where it’s unwanted. Where and when did you and the two SPLM leaders you are mentioning are heading to form their own parties. Riek tried, Lam Akol tried, they both failed. PaGUN, ARMAN are humble SPLA/M members. There compliants due to irregularities in the election does not ground them for division.

              I am not saying that because I want it, it is because that is what can be forecasted. Since this is going to be a country, the politics is going to shape itself and it is natural for liberation parties to divide after the victories. NAC in South Africa got divided and Southern African people are still enjoying their country. If it is a healthy division that will provide options for Southerner to choose people who will deliver services, then we should not be so angry about it

                Big baby, what is the constituency of Yasir Arman in South Sudan for him to get a parliament seat on South ticket?
                He has to inform a party in the North and let us bet for that!

      you are absolutely right on the point, no room for those chameleons, they are neither relaible, creditable or trustworthy.

      "Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness."

      they all choose to walk in the darkness of destructive selfishness hand on hand with the NCP, for the seek of power.
