SPLM rejects NCP conditions on Juba conference.
The conference aims to develop a national vision on how to make the unity an attractive option in 2011 referendum, he added. He further stressed that this conference aims to confirm the referendum on self-determination for southern Sudan people adding "This dialogue is important to develop a national vision of how to manage the results of the referendum, whether for unity or separation." The NCP Secretary for political relations Mandour Al-Mahdi hinted this week that Juba conference would be a tribune to pass the agenda of the opposition parties. Before the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, the SPLM was part of an opposition coalition including Umma party, Democratic Unionist Party, Communist Party and Eastern Front and Darfur rebel SLM among others. Since the signing of the CPA, Salva Kiir distanced the SPLM form its former allies but he met them for the first time last July to explain the position of his party on their demand for a large national government before the next year election. The SPLM supported the NCP rejection of the opposition demand. (ST)
