Sudan: SPLM Website Temporarily Suspended

Internet

The website of South Sudan ruling party (SPLM) has temporarily been suspended. StartLogic, a source told Sudan Tribune, pulled down the party's website early this week. "This site has been suspended", reads a statement on visiting the party website.

It is not clear why the US based web hosting company; a subsidiary of Endurance International Group, suspended the south-ruling party's site. No official statement has so far been issued by the party in relation to the matter.

On Tuesday, senior officials were locked up in the party's political bureau meeting, seeking to review and adopt drafts of the SPLM basic documents ahead of their forthcoming National Liberation Council (NLC) and extra ordinary conventions. The convention, Anne Itto, the deputy SPLM secretary general said, aims to review the party's manifesto, constitution, basic rules and regulations as well as the code of conduct.
