(NSV) - The Seventh Front recommended on Sunday in its eighth panel, which was dedicated to post southern Sudan referendum issues, that the south should not split oil with the north. The panel said the south should instead negotiate for renting of the pipelines from the north, while it moves swiftly to construct its own.

The panel also pointed out that some of the assets in the country, including oil refineries and pipelines were paid for by southern revenues, and the south should only rent a share of the north.

Dr. Yongo-Bure, an associate professor of Social Science at Kettering University, Dr. Laura Nyantung Beny, a professor of Law at the University of Michigan & Co-founder of Peace Dividend, and Parek Maduot, a graduate of the University of Maryland at College Park and regular contributor to The New Sudan Vision took part in the panel on Sunday. 

“Seventh Front” is a term coined by the late First Vice President of Sudan and President of the semi-autonomous Government of Southern, John Garang de Mabior to refer to Sudanese in the Diaspora. Garang declared the Diaspora as the ‘Seventh Front’ to acknowledge their growing roles and contributions in the struggle to bring about peace and democracy in Southern Sudan after the region endured decades of brutal repression from military regimes in Khartoum.

The Seventh Front assembles passionate and knowledgeable guests to assess the impact of current events as they unfold in Southern Sudan. The panel aims to arm citizens with credible information to keep their government accountable and effect positive change on the ground as Sudan approaches its first true multi-party elections in 2010 and a referendum on Southern Sudan in 2011.
