2013/12/06 Members of the (dissolved) SPLM Political Bureau hold a press conference and issue a statement in which they accuse Salva Kiir of discarding SPLM structures, ostracizing people formerly close to John Garang, bringing non-SPLM or recently-SPLM people into high government office. They call on him not to bypass the BP but to convene it to set the agenda for the NLC. Participants include: Riek Machar, Pagan Amum, Rebecca Nyandeng, Alfred Lado, Deng Alor, Chol Tong, Taban Deng, John Luk, Adwok Nyaba, Majak Agot, Oyai Deng, Madut Biar, Gier Chuang, Luka Monoja, Cirino Hiteng and Ezekiel Lol.
