SPLM Legal Affairs Minister Michael Macuwai said that VP Taha and GoSS VP Riek Machar failed at a meeting yesterday to reach a compromise on the national security bill especially the section on the security apparatus’ power to arrest.

He said the meeting decided to refer the bill to the Cabinet and then to the Parliament.

He added that during the meeting, SPLM also received a draft copy of the referendum law for consideration and that the meeting also discussed popular consultation bills for the Nuba Mountains, the Blue Nile and Abyei referendum.
