The SPLM in Opposition has not participated in the recently convened Extraordinary Convention called and organized by SPLM Chairman Ge. Salva Kirr Mayardit to work on the party’s documents especially the 2008 constitution amendment and the incorporation of the Arusha SPLM agreement.
Taban said they didn’t participate fully in the convention citing unfinished work of the committees from the three factions of the party on the reunification process of the party.
Taban further explains that he was called and convinced by South Africa’s ANC party Deputy Chairman Cryil Ramaphosa to attend the opening and the closing session of the Convention.
The SPLM-IO will study the newly amended constitution and comment on their position. The Former detainees also attended the convention through the request of ANC in the same manner as the SPLM-IO
