Sudan's Parliament Ends Southern Membership Early

Khartoum's ruling National Congress Party signed a 2005 peace deal with the southern ex-rebel Sudan People's Liberation Movement to form a joint government and parliament, share oil wealth and promising a 2011 southern referendum on secession. The wealth and power sharing is due to end on July 9, Reuters reported. But the NCP-dominated national parliament on Monday amended the constitution without consulting the SPLM, souring north-south relations which had improved since the NCP recognition of the result of January's referendum, showing 99 percent of southerners voted for independence. Sudan's justice minister presented the new constitution to parliament and the speaker told reporters that the SPLM members would not participate in the April session of parliament.
