Struggle over oil delays Sudan unity gov't

KHARTOUM, Sudan -- Struggle over control of the ministry of energy and mining is delaying the formation of a national unity government in Sudan, official sources said Monday.

The peace agreement signed last January between the Sudanese authorities and southern rebels from the Sudan People Liberation Army/Movement stipulated the formation of a national unity administration by mid-August.

But the two sides have been struggling for control of the ministry of energy, which oversees the country's developing oil sector, delaying the announcement of the government for more than two weeks.

The agreement provided the ruling National Congress party will get 52 percent of the 30 ministerial portfolios, the SPLA/M 28 percent and the rest to be distributed among smaller parties.

It also stipulated oil revenues should be shared equally between the two main parties.
