The Politics of the Government of Southern Sudan
The leader of the semi-autonomous Southern Sudanese government, Salva Kiir, is asking people there to vote for independence in the upcoming referendum. Kiir warns that Southern Sudanese would be treated as "second class" citizens if they vote for unity with the north. But President Hassan Al-Bashir's National Congress party says Kiir's comments undermine the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).
