Nugud’s Visit to Juba Historic…...Ann Itto

Image The SPLM Deputy Secretary General, Comrade Ann Itto has called the visit by the delegation of the Sudan Communist Party (SCP) to Juba as historic. She made these comments in a press conference at Juba International Airport, Friday, briefly after receiving Mohammed Ibrahim Nugud, Secretary General of the SCP and head of the delegation to Juba, Southern Sudan.

 

 

Comrade Itto further said the visit by the Communist Party to Juba shows that the South, and the Sudan as a whole, is surely transforming into a multi-party society where everyone gets the freedom and opportunity to visit and address its supporters anywhere within the country. She added that the SPLM is keen in power-sharing and will not feel threathened or bothered by the presence of other political parties, rather the SPLM looks forward to working with such parties in areas of commonalities.
