SPLM boycott preserves social peace in Sudan - Arman

April 12, 2010 (KHARTOUM) — The withdrawn candidate of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) denounced the poor conditions of the general elections in Sudan saying his boycott served to maintain social peace in the country.

Yasir Arman speaking in a pressconference held in Khartoum, on April 12, 2010 (AP) Sudan’s general elections, which are part of the 2005 peace pact, were designed to achieve democratic transition and to encourage southerners to vote for unity in a referendum scheduled for January 2011, another benchmark of the deal.

The opposition parties and the SPLM accused the dominant National Congress Party (NCP) of committing irregularities and slammed the poor preparation as well as the conduct of elections while the seven year conflict in Darfur remains unresolved.

Two of the main political forces in Sudan, SPLM and Umma party, boycott the presidential elections and the legislative and states voting the north. As like the other opposition parties, they slammed the integrity and independence of the National Election Commission (NEC) and the position of the American administration which is seen favorable to the NCP.

"What we are witnessing today bypassed the worst expectations on the running of the electoral process in the country," Yasir Arman told Sudan Tribune today. He added that electoral fraud practiced by the NCP is now quiet clear, leaving no room for doubt

Arman said if he participated in the presidential race there would be clashes now between the security forces massed in Khartoum streets and the angry crowd.

"The boycott has served to main social peace," he emphasized.

He added the security troops mobilized in the capital are more in number than the voters.

In similar remarks the head of opposition National Consensus Forces, FarouK Abu Eissa, on Monday echoed Arman statements saying if "we were participating in this election we would reject the security measures as result of our rejection of these violations," he said, adding the withdrawal has spared violence in the country.

Sudanese police said they have deployed 100,000 elements to secure the electoral process all over the country. Some twenty thousand are in Khartoum. Also the NCP figures and media organs warned that any attempt to protest or disturb the elections will be severely repressed.

Yasir Arman also said he fears that the NCP chairman now would work to fraud the southern Sudan referendum on self determination in January 2011. During the electoral campaign, President Omer Al-Bashir said that 30% of southerners are favorable for separation and other 30% are for a united state while 40% not decided, according to a survey he asked to conduct.

The former SLPM runner for Sudan presidency said such statements demonstrate Bashir’s intention to rig the referendum results.

Arman also regretted the position of the former US President Jimmy Carter who showed his support to the elections despite the irregularities and delays that a report of his center had spotted since last March.

"It is unfortunate that there are major figures, such as President Carter, contributing to cover these scandalous fraud and chaos of the National Election Commission," he said.

The Sudanese opposition officials in press conference held Monday also slammed the support of US President special envoy Scott Gration and the former President Carter to the electoral process despite the irregularities. They accused them of working to divide the country.

Carter Center in a report released on March 17 had warned that the poor preparation could impact negatively the process and suggested to delay briefly the electoral process. The opposition forces had made similar objections and asked to delay it to November.

Arman further said that the outcome of these elections would complicate the resolution of Darfur conflict "because it will bring a group of unwelcome people who contributed in raising the fire of sedition in Darfur," he said.

Asked about what their plans to the after election period Arman, who also heads the SPLM northern Sudan sector, said they are consulting with the opposition forces to adopt a joint position.

Last week, the SPLM deputy chairman, Riek Machar, said Arman was behind the decision to withdraw from the presidential election, adding boycott by SPLM northern Sudan of legislative and states elections might lead them to do underground subversive activities.

    Dear readers,

    The extension of the voting period for two more days will change nothing positive but even make things worse especially stuffing of boxes with fake ballots. The confusion of missing names or lists taken to wrong places and lost track for ever will not be resolved but messed up even further. And besides, there are few voters as the turnout is reported very low in many states. In a station that registered 1000 for example, only 50 people have voted so far.

    I read Dr. Ann Itto’s report that in a station in Toirt town where 1,323 were registered to vote, only 29 of them voted on Monday, making it only 2% of the whole list.

    I have heard from reliable sources on the ground that there is high possibility of exchanging legitimate boxes with already stuffed ones with pre-ticked ballots. This extension will negatively give more chance for manipulations.

    The polling had a wrong start on Sunday when tens of thousands of names began to be missing including names of ministers and contesting governors.

    Funny thing though is when the president of South Sudan, Salvatore Kiir, was reported all over the world media including the BBC that he put his ballot paper in the wrong box as he inaugurated the voting early in the morning on Sunday. Probably he unknowingly voted for Dr. Lam Akol and put the ballot paper in Bashir’s box. What a funny fake election!!!

      Southerners,

      Yasser Arman withdrew himself after he knew that he was going to fail. He got the campaign money and abruptly called it a quit! Even John Garang would have withdrawn himself if he didn’t want to wait until being announced the loser in the elections.

      And besides, Yasser Arman is the worst communist unionist pretending to be sheep while a hyena in sheep’s clothing among the SPLM leadership. If elected he would be the first northern leader to fight the South over independence.

      Now he wants to resort to his true color by ganging up with the traditional hyenas of opposition parties who are known for dying in hate for referendum in the South. This means Yasser Arman will be in opposition in the next elected government where his SPLM chairman, Salvatore Kiir will be its First Vice President. What a rebellion!!!

      These were the bed partners to Garang in the defunct marriage of NDA. Those of Sadiq were responsible for blackmailing Garang to distance himself from self-determination until 2002 after they divorced him and re-united with their northerners in Khartoum.

      Yasser Aram wants to join them to disturb the process to referendum! So nibbing him in the bud through his own initiative is a blessing from God.

      With ballot or bullet South Sudan shall be free. So those beating the drums of war should not think that we trust Bashir 100%. If he violates the referendum, then as the person who signed the CPA, we should deal with him instead of hyena strangers poping up in Khartoum palace and denying the CPA that it never existed.

      We are ready for any eventuality. We can declare Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) if Bashir says no to referendum. So, referendum is not the only route to independence, folks. "Ballot or Bullet." We know what we do better than you, whinners!

        Where are you going to take CDR Yasir Arman in the South?
        Who are you to tell him that he is acommunist.

          Look at this confused slave boy. Who told you Aram is a southerner? Being in bed with your sister doesn’t qualify him a southerner. We will hang him if he sets foot in the South.

          Let him rebel against Salvatore and Riek Machar. The NCP will deal with their butts in the North and will be disowned by the SPLM in the South.

        People,

        Referendum in Southern Sudan is just a political farce. Bashir will do all he can in his ability to force unity on the SPLM. Secondly, Bashir will use money as a tool to buy unity. He will target the Naath Community using money to buy their votes in favor of unity.

        As he already promised during his campaign in Bentiu, Bashir has special programs for Naath Community in general. Bashir will pure money in Nuer Land as a part of his campaign for the unity of Sudan. As soon as he is elected, Bashir will launch the establishment of the University of Bentiu. Also, he will launch a series of road networks in Bentiu and Upper Nile State as a part to buy back his old allies. Then he will pay local chiefs in Nuer Land to convince their people to vote for the unity of Sudan.

          Naath are all separatists and have fathered the self-determination with their rich land of oil and agriculture ready to give them 100% of every thing. Don’t worry. No single person from the Naath will vote for unity.

          And besides, UDI is at the corner if Bashir says no to referendum. Independence is inevitable!!!!

            If so why did the majority of Naath people fought on side the Khartoum government against the SPLA during the war? Gatwech, you can not just claim to fathered the self-determination while you were and still fighting on the side of the enemy. You get people like Gatwech Dual who are still doing the dirty work on behave of the enemy. Believe me, Naath people will again betray the Southerners during the referendum as they did during the war.

              Stop asking that silly question. Why don’t ask yourself why did John Garang fought on the side of Jallaba Jaafer Nimeiri against the Anya-nya II forces in Bilpam. What was Garang doing in Khartoum during that time and joined with Nimeiri against Anya-nya II?

              And why did Garang join Omer al-Bashir in 2005 until he died serving Bashir as his junior (deputy)?

              Why is Kiir now serving Bashir in Khartoum as his deputy?

              If it is because of the CPA in 2005, then it was because of the KPA in 1997.

              All were/are being violated. So, please you will not understand what you are asking. Just stop acting like a slave boy crying for unity and Jallaba president (Arman).

          Patriots,

          Those who are dreaming that the referendum is going to be handed to South on a silver plate have to be awoken from their sleep. Bashir will be more emboldened now than at any time in his rule to thwart South’s match to nationhood. After all, the Americans actually turned a blind eye to Bashir’s shenanigans and allowed him to remain in power. There is no election to talk about. The only losers in this diabolical setup are the Sudanese people. They had no clear choice or fair conditions to empress their true democratic duty.

          Now we are stuck with a more empowered NCP that will put multitudes of roadblock on the referendum. With Kiir and Traitor riek being spineless cowards, Bashir can expect a smooth ride to keeping the country united. Maybe this is what is needed to reawaken South’s rebellious streak.

        you are really son of Nuer who care for hopeless deeds. your man called Dr Riak Machar rebelled against SPLM several times but all Nuer communities took no option on what their son and brother is doing. the SPLM who really care for her people took it simple and progressed ahead till he had to come back after he knew that peace is going to prevail in South-Sudan. we welcome him justifically.

        now the so called Angelina Tieny wife of the same Riak is contesting as an independent candidate and still all Nuer are keeping quiet. are you really normal? the decission made by SPLM is in the heart of all people over the globe accept you hopeless Nuer community I tell you.

        Angelina Tieny first in the time of war, she divorced Machar but when she heard that Machar is apoint the vice president of GOSS, she immediated packed up her lagages seeing where Riak is. according to you Nuer, Is she really a good woman to lead you? shame on you and her. the stupitity remain on people who diserve hopeless dignity as you.

        SPLM shall decide and must be taken to advantage whether you like or not. I know you are from UDSF who is ever crying in all days time "let’s go back home yet they are at home".

        my message to your wife Angelina Tieny, Angelina, you are not ligable to lead Nuer people to the right direction. leave them alone and follow up your prositution act which is your first choice.

        Bravo to the advisers

      Gatwech,

      Your lying and exaggeration has gone too far. How could Salva Kiir vote for Lam Akol while the later has got no his own ballot box? There are only three voting boxes, for the presidency,both for the republic and GoSS, one for state governors and the other for all the assemblies. Yes, Salva kiir casted his paper for GoSS prsidency in a wrong box because the boxes were not marked or he was not directed by the polling official well.He later filled another voting paper and put in a right box

      Absolutely, Lam has no his own box in which Salva casted his vote for him. Don’t let your lying blind you man.

      Brother Gartwech, you made me laughed too much specially when you mention Kiir cast his vote to Dr. Lam box and Omar Bashir box, that is why i said in previous Kiir is not a serious leader in every single detail, and that is a dangerous behave for a leader such as Kiir, i doubt also even process of referendum will be rig in coming January 9, 2011. If Kiir didn’t adapt a good conduct of leadership, its supposed leader should be more serious about searching details of any document, and these behave of not considering any issue seriously is a big problem in south future. Thus for some more things i have observed in Kiir dealing with every thing since he came to the leadership in 2005, when he gave up for oil position to the NCP, as there were problems at election process which cause defection of some members in SPLM, to run independently, he also was not concerning about election processes without knowing how does the committee works, which they did in mixing the names of voters in south while in north everything is going smoothly, and that Omar want to send a sign of ignoring south leadership as unorganized leadership, as he is dreaming to repeated again in 2011, in a day light of Kiir eyes because he is not serious, as he had understood Kiir very well who is Kiir, where is his point of weakness, those are unexpected descriptions of the leader who wants to take his nation to other side of River as they are dreaming now, which i don’t see it in Kiir leadership.

      I have missed Dr. John Garang very much for his seriousness in every single detail of any document, because he is always confident in every issue even he was confident in his death.

      I hope South Sudan would have an enough leadership with a longer sight, not as weak and short sighted leadership.

        Dear Samuel Kur

        There is no voting box for each particular presidential candidate. There is only box for the ones contesting GoSS presidency and one for those contesting national post. Think well instead of being decieved by seasoned lairs. Salva Kiir casted his vote in a wrong box, for the state governors or both assemblies.
        Kiir has no box nor Lam Akol. All their votes in each particular polling station are cast in box and later be sorted out after election. Do think in your narrow mind that all ten northerners who are contesting presidential post have ten boxes each at every polling station across the country?

        Poor people with IQ like you should rehearse themselves before participating in such modern forums.
        Indeed, you are laughing at yourself. He who laughs last, laughs best.

In addition of grabbing southerners attention about their stupid unawareness do you think with your garbage minded which seems like your Kiir mind, that south will succeed in your Kiir ’s hands.

            You are a retarded moron to a human being a donkey. Is this the way an educated person argue?
            Don’t retrack. You did said Kiir voted for Lam and Bashir. The reality on the ground is vivid. Kiir is here and if you don’t acknowledge that, that is your business. It’s immoral to insult the leader as a ’donkey’. You are not principled and this might reflect that you grew up in a broken family and lack civic education at all.
            Criticism of Kiir as a national leader is a right for all, but nothing justifies the way you and your likes are doing is contrary to the minds of intellectuals. Grow up mentally man.

          Gardwech you are not supposed to name Yassir Arman as a coward, he had remained in movement firmly till now because he feel a marginalized people need, the one who is coward is your favorite thick mind with a short sighted like Dr who the un educated man in Luak is better than him, he is dreaming to be a leader, but he will not because he doesn’t deserve to be in charge of country while he is connected to tribalism people like you who doesn’t like any person except the person from your tribe.

          What your favorite leader did? He thought to coup the movement when he felt it is remain three cities in south captured in zero hour according to what was agreed in movement in 1991, he felt he is one who had mention in Ngondeng ghost Bible, so he jump to fulfill his primitive desire by listening to ghost opinions, such as Gartwech.

          What happened to your favorite leader? when he signed his Khartoum agreement in 1997, i was working in that night in Khartoum while some one of Arab told me why are working today and your people are partying in public palace in Khartoum? i told him for what? he said a peace party, i said did John Garang attend the party? he said no. i said that agreement is fake agreement. I told him the same government did accept to agree with powerful faction in Abuja how will be real agreement? I frankly told they cheating them and you will see after few coming year. exactly what i said after three years later people began to complain about implementing their agreement.

          What happened to your short sighted leader he was planning to escape from Khartoum, because some analysis arose up in that time by saying may be Reik fade will be like William Deng Nyial, when he defected from Anynya one and joint government in Khartoum in 1960s, but he was assassinated by unknown person, which made Reik to scare too much even we heard from some rumors that Reik in severe situation he is sleepless as he some times does eat food because of his stresses, which made cde Taban Deng Gai to plan for Reik escaping as had been successful done by Taban by saying Dr. Reik is going to visit his family, while he remained in Khartoum until he left later , and too many stories i could not able to mention it now.

          Do you think Yassir Arman is coward or Reik, see Dr Johan Garang have been told by his elders in Bor and many places not to go to Khartoum because he will die, but he told them people of south should have of my death or CPA but i prefer them to have peace than my life, that is why you realize were doing everything very fast after his arrival to Khartoum because he knew he will not live longer any more,this is braveness not cowardness

      Don’t take Bashir serious about his so-called survey which asked only a handful of IDPs behind his palace in Khartoum. Let him do the survey in the South if he wants to know for sure what will happen. More than 95% of southerners are ready to vote for separation.

      Bashir is also afraid and wants to appease his northern unionist by telling them that he is for unity of Sudan when what he dearly wants is power in the North without the headache in the South. He wants the South to go away so that he can rule the North forever!

The sudue of Khartoum regime is not that news to Southerners, and their manipualtion has been in the existing for decades and therefore we South Sudanese need to work harder because we had boycott the election for the referendum.

        South Sudan is for Naath and there is no reason behind out intention to sell it for money. Dinkas are the money lover; they steal the Goss money in Juba. The true color of this tribe is that you can buy them for food. They die after leadership and money. So if you want to enslave the Dinkas you have to give them food and leadership and you can have sold the whole tribe. I have been seeing many of their tribe men claiming that they were adductive by the Arab while they were the one who chose to work for the Arab. These were ordinary people who choose to do the manual labor and harvest for contractor, but they are trying to fool the world that they were abducted. Moreover, Garang the thief even has a gut to manipulate the white people by laying to them about his tribe men being abducted by the Arab but there were never been such events. And, because of the money you do not need to fake your hunger of food to cheat the system. The whole world is aware of you Dinka and there will be no ordinary human you might try to fool
        The only fear we should all fear is that these stupid Dinka might trying to sell our vote for the sake of food but hopefully nothing like this will happen. Let get the independent and I am sure there will be no where for those money lovers to hide and we will show you who own you. There is a reason behind our silencing, we did it for the sake of the referendum is what our beloved son was fighting for unlike your Dr. dead blind Garang Devil who is being killed by Ngundeng for trying to sell the southern for unity. They will be no unity with south. We the Naath will never have hate toward other, we are known for hospitality, and peaceful co existence with other people unlike you Dinka who has no love for others.
        Dear Gatramiraan Gatwech,
        Please do not be discouraged by these hyena Dinkas, the reason why they hate you is because they cannot resonated like you therefore their intention is to make you look like the enemy while they are misanthrope to your intelligence. The SPL/A have no choice because Dr. Devil Garang has no real vision to follow which has make the only beloved son of south Dr. Machar the winner because SPLA are followed his Self Determination which is referendum that southern are yearning for but, the Nyandeng boy does not want to see the man succeeding and that is why most have hate toward Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon. ……SplA without Naath Nuer is nowhere to exist because the corrupt Dinka only think of themselves and won’t give a damn about other tribe. Fuck the Dinka and long live the Naath and the rest of southern whose patience has help reach the journey we are awaiting for the referendum.
