The SPLM is facing huge pressures from the National Congress Party (NCP), as different officials accused the southern Sudan party of supporting the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) which clashed recently in Darfur and Kordofan with the government troops in Darfur.

Gahzi Salah Eddin, who is in charge of Darfur file urged the southern Sudan ruling party “to left her hand from Darfur conflict” saying that the role of the SPLM in Darfur was always negative since the start of the conflict.

Also the spokesperson of the Sudan Armed Forces said that the SPLM is harboring JEM troops. He added that such support violate the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and the security arrangements specially.

Massar called on the NCP and the other political forces in the north to prepare to confront the military aggression planned by the SPLM.
