SPLM accuses the ruling party of violating peace deal

Sept 27, 2006

For the first time since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement on 9 January 2005, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement accused its partner in the government of the national unity, the ruling National Congress Party, of violating the peace deal.

This development comes after a statement made by Ibrahim Ahmed Omar, a leading member of the National Congress Party, saying if there is a military confrontation with the UN forces in Darfur, the NCP would cancel the CPA.

According to the Satellite TV al-Jazeera, Omar also condemned the SPLM stance in favor of the UN takeover from the African Union forces in Sudan’s troubled region of Darfur.

Al-Jazeera broadcasted a photocopy of the SPLM’s statement in Arabic language.
