Nine candidates including the seated governor had been seeking the governorship. On Monday, however, the SPLM selection committee chairman announced only five candidates managed to meet the criteria required by the National Election Commission. "We used SPLM guidelines for nominating our SPLM candidates -- also popularity and the term one had spent in serving our movement were taken as factors, as well as behaviors were considered," said Mayen Kuc. It is now up to the SPLM Political Bureau in Juba to decide which candidate to choose to contest against the other parties in the April voting. After the results were released at a press conferenceat Palm-tree Hotel, the present governor prevented the announcement over state government-owned Radio FM-98 and he immediately called an emergency meeting in the SPLM Secretariat Hall, whereupon all members declined to show up. Awet is SPLM chairman at the state level, elected in 2007 through formation of the SPLM congress. The five candidates selected for consideration by the Political Bureau are: Chol Tong Mayay -- Presently the minister of Physical Infrastructure, he comes from Rumbek Central County. David Nok Marial -- Presently the deputy governor and minister of Local government and Law Enforcement Agency, he comes from Rumbek East County. Rin Tueny Mabor -- Known as Ajuong-Kuolbet, he comes from Yirol West County. Daniel Ayual Makoi -- He comes from Yirol East County. Gordon Maper Manyiel -- Presently the chairman of SPLM caucus in Lakes state parliament, he comes from Rumbek East County.
