The SPLM has voiced its discontent and anxiety over the security disturbances along the North-South borders calling on the NCP to reply to its observations on the NCP’s proposal to solve Abyei dispute.

SPLM’s Secretary-General Pagan Amum, who was speaking during the meetings of the SPLM’s Transitional Council, told journalists that the council was committed to conduct the general elections on time following the attainment to a democratic electoral law.

He said that the council denounced the repeated violations of human rights and public freedoms, urging the government to guarantee non- harassment of journalists and press freedom.

Amum rejected attacks launched against the SPLA and the citizens, calling on Miseria tribe to work with the leaderships of the areas of ethnical interaction to maintain stability and realize common interests for all Sudanese people in these areas.” We appeal to them (Miseria) to avoid occurrence of security collapse because this does not serve the issue of unity”.

He disclosed that the council discussed arrangements for conducting the census next April, adding that the SPLM set a condition that census questionnaire should include questions of race and religion.
