(ICC) Peace negotiations between the government of Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army SPLM/A) were experiencing “some difficulties” on Tuesday, a rebel spokesman told IRIN. The details of power-sharing in the two of the disputed areas – the Nuba mountains and southern Blue Nile – as well as at national level, had yet to be agreed on, said Yasir Arman, an SPLM/A spokesman. In the disputed areas, the government had offered the SPLM/A forty percent of parliamentary seats and executive posts, and in the national government 28 percent, he said. Neither of these figures were acceptable: “The government is offering us 28 percent; we are asking for 38 percent, based on a population census of southern Sudan, the Nuba mountains and the
southern Blue Nile.
