August 2, 2013 (JUBA) – The South Sudanese parliament convened a special session on Friday to vet and approve the new cabinet, but decided to reschedule the process after failing to reach a consensus on some of the candidates put forward.

Some members asserted that the new cabinet should not include those who had already served in government positions, but failed to make any valuable contribution.

There were also calls for the provision of personal resumes and mandatory background checks of appointed cabinet members to be vetted by the house before final approval.

“We support the president in the reduction of the size of the government. We would appreciate if the president extends [this] reduction to the commissions. There are commissions which have similar functions. The president should go further and reduce them to at least three commissions”, Anyoti Adigo, the leader of minority group in the parliament, told reporters.

Adigo called on the president to extend his decision to the ministry, where advisory positions have been created despite there already being enough qualified people to run the institutions effectively.

"We expect the president to go to the ministries and remove those advisors. I don’t know what they advise while there are already technical people there. You have the under-secretary, the director general and directors of departments. These are people who have knowledge, perfect skills and experiences. Why again appoint advisors who actually do not [have] the knowledge, lack experience and skills to advise", Adigo said.

"This is just a waste of public resources. They should be removed so that these funds given to them can be used to support development projects”, he added.

He said the house had decided to postpone vetting and approval of the new cabinet as the house needs more time to obtain clear information and background checks about individual members appointed to the government by the president.

"This is a constitutional mandate of the parliament and this is why the session has been adjourned", the minority leader stressed.

South Sudan president Salva Kiir on Wednesday issued a decree appointing 18 cabinet ministers and 10 deputies, a week after he dissolved his entire government.

The president, in several decrees announced, left unoccupied the position of the vice-president as well as minister for the presidency.

Several new faces were elevated to cabinet in the 31 July decree, issued under Article 112 (1) and 117(1) of the Transitional Constitution of the Republic of South Sudan.

The president said he chose this moment to restructure his government and lay the groundwork for a lean and stronger cabinet, comprising 29 ministers and their deputies.

"This downsizing will create synergies, allow budgets to flow to high priority development projects and also allow for better management by dedicated civil servants," party reads Kiir’s statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

WOMEN PROTEST

Meanwhile, a women’s parliamentary caucus group expressed strong concerns over the appointment of the new cabinet, claiming the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) had failed to fulfill a commitment to promote women’s participation in decision making processes at the highest levels.

“We feel that the appointment did not reflect well on the political will and commitment of the SPLM and our government to promote women participation the decision making positions. There are only two women as full ministers and three deputies”, said Mary Nyaulang.

The lawmaker said her group feels under-represented and called on the president to honour his government’s commitment to affirmative action by appointing at least two additional women to the cabinet before it is endorsed by the house.

NEW VICE PRESIDENT

Another concern is the rare delay in appointing a new Vice President to fill the shoes of the former long term Kiir’s deputy, Riek Machar Teny.

Speculations suggest that the current speaker, James Wani Igga, will take over the seat once he has made sure the current national appointees are vetted in parliament. John Luk Jok, former minister of Justice, is expected to become the new speaker of parliament.

The SPLM MPs caucus will sit to consult on Saturday in order to reach a common position in parliament as some criticize these choices for the two positions.

    • 3 August 2013 07:14, by jijury

      Those MPs need to wake from their deep slumber and put the country first before their pay checks. For how long will they allow this indecisive president to run the country?

      • 3 August 2013 07:47, by Nyesi Ta

        If the mps wakesup from their deep sleep and begin to put the country first before their pay cheques, Kiir’s last resort will be to dissolve parliament. Now it is up to the mps to choose between approving Kiir’s nominees and going home.

        • 3 August 2013 09:48, by SSforlife

          @nyesl Ta you just read my mind. Interesting hmmm........

      • 3 August 2013 16:36, by Dau-network

        Thanks president but no need of 3 guys Michael Makuei Lueth, Telar Riing Deng and Aleu Ayeny Aleu instead of autocrate energetics people because those 3 ministers are unproductives unless you appointed them for reasons known to you alone! I thinks parliament will reject them if we want really changes in current government.

      • 3 August 2013 13:40, by william

        You bitch pray very hard to your gundeng for President death but mind you that even if he dies the traitors will get no room to rule this country since there are so many truly liberator that take over. This will teach those rebels to be committed to their people in white and black without defection. Sorry your were already denied.

      Midiit,
      You are suffering from extreme hatred toward President Salva. Why do you wish him not reaching X-Mass while not you? God appoint leaders brother and relieve your hatred. Love peace.

        • 3 August 2013 14:22, by william

          Come on Wani, rights always are bitter and sour. If your not not food lover why riak left for Khartoum in 1992? Was it not because SPLM/A have no salary nor factories by then?? He came back only when salary was initiated in the south how long will you die running after money forgetting national affairs???? But not all nuer are food lover Julia to be honest it is him riak and alikes

        • 3 August 2013 13:52, by william

          @ Sobat Dog let stick to the point of agenda checking background does not means failure to get fit person in vice president position but to screen out traitors and enemies before approval. Secondly, Riak and Lam technicalities are become useless to the south Sudanese whom they betrayed. If dumb trabalist better choose nuer among truly hearted nuer and support rather than duelling on this dead aliv

        • 3 August 2013 14:14, by Hardlinner

          Do you guys even have trust on your abilities and rights.these wannabe leaders only care about there own pockets. Kiir and riek have nothing modern to provide to all southerners. Their village leadership skills are not competitive enough for modern and digital age.

    this is what Emanuel jal posted.......i need ur opinions guys (south sudanese)
    The Current Government in South Sudan is Promoting Tribalism, First class citizen is a Dinka second class citizen is Nuer(naath) 3rd class is any other tribe. the constitution is being forced into the president pocket. am not sure if the government understand this very reason led the formation of SPLA/M in 1983. what is

    • 3 August 2013 07:29, by Nibs

      Good citizens, comment on the article. There had been enough opinion on Facebook concerning what Jal had posted.

    • 3 August 2013 07:29, by michael coma

      Tell Jal that you had formed your organization called Gua Africa that deals in sponsoring orphans.His organization is full of leer students alone.The most nepotist person is Jal.

  • 3 August 2013 07:28, by Good Citizen

    As per Emmanuel Jal’s, the renowned South Sudanese Musician, comment, the recent ministerial appointments is highly tribalistic and perpetuate tribalism as Dinka alone grabbed 59% of appointees, followed by 2nd class Nuer 21%, and finally 3rd class Equatorians 20%. Other communities like Fertit in Wau, and all other minorities do not count.proud to be a south Sudanese ?

    • 3 August 2013 17:38, by Justin Chicago opiny

      I do not understand why some south sudanese do not know the the different between Equatoria and a tribe, Equatoria are the 3 states of former greater Equatoria province with many tribes such as Acoli,Azande with a very large population Bari,Toposa with a sizealbe population as well and others like Latuka, These are some of the tribes in greater Equatoria but are not Equatorians as a tribe.

  • 3 August 2013 08:18, by blesssing

    Who may tell me the constitutional provisions that dissolve the national parliament? MPs should be very careful, they should not get involved in Dr. Riak Machar’s footsteps, otherwise this parliament will be dissolved with republican degree.

    • 3 August 2013 09:26, by Peter Mading

      The parliament always given what has been air out 2 deliberate on and all in all their views become caution for next formation/reshuffling. Now it’s too late. I do agree with Women representation they could have been additional 1 ministerial 2 make 3 and not more than what they demanded. Other Political parties, there under presented. That’s true. However, let the List be passed becoz it’s too lat

    @Anti-traitor.
    I have been ignoring your assertion of "YES PPLE".

  • 3 August 2013 09:23, by Diu Tut Deng

    Lawmakers where were you since this constitutional mess by the president?,25% didn’t reach their range, claim your right is your constitutional right, mind you the kiir supports will also call the whole parliament that Dr. riek supports belief me, they don’t know they are the eyes of common men/women at grass root and got nothing to do with Riek.

  • 3 August 2013 09:31, by SSforlife

    First of all I would like to thank out parliament for the job we done. For the benefit of our country certain individual shouldn’t be appointed as ministers. For example:
    Telar Deng is a selfish negative gossiper who is not liked by his people, and he always undermine the president.
    Alueu Ayeny is a dranket who connot take care of himself, than how can he take care of the country.

  • 3 August 2013 10:27, by Capital Bullets

    In the real democratic world MPs vet any president’s appointed. to find out their credentials and check against criminal background and insanity.
    However, I S. Sudan it is different. Kiir is bringing those who can screw him through 2015. MPs continue your work let him desolve the parliament. He will C.

  • 3 August 2013 11:00, by Odingo

    A professor of law to be speaker of the parliament. Folks, this is not gonna happen. John Luk is over qualify to be speaker of the Dinka Kiir parliament.The world leaders are expected kiir to hand over the leadership to John Luk instead of speaker.He is even over qualify to be Vice, but he can accept it for the sack of his country.John Luk wrote the nation constitution.U need to know that.

    • 3 August 2013 11:18, by Sobat Boy

      Odingo
      There is nothing called over qualify in the gov’ John Luke is #1 service self-interest. John should be blamed about given clumsy president power like that. Look, the country is chaos becuase of him. I don’t like John to be appointed in any position in the gov. John is selffish guy.

  • 3 August 2013 11:20, by Odingo

    For what I know Dr. Riek Machar Teny still the Vice and pres in 2015. He accepted to serve under dictatorship of dnka Kir for the sack of his country that he dedicated his life since 1991, bring SS to be recognized as an independence state through Dr. Machar.Rather than that he is over qualify to be under incompetent Pres.Dinka Kiir need to appoint someone the nation will be comfortable wth him

  • 3 August 2013 11:39, by Odingo

    To Sobatboy. U are right my friend, I forgot that.John Luk was the one wwho gave the Pres Kiir all these dictatorship powers because he was blind fool by dinka Kiir hoping that he will be appointed as a permanent Chief Justice.Now the Kiir Kingdom got what they need n left him out.There will be big miraculous in this appointment of Vice.Something will happen for sure,becasuse its unconstitutional

  • 3 August 2013 12:05, by Odingo

    Folks the reason why I am so disappointed for the removal of Vice is because its unconstitutional to remove Vice without justification that can lead the President to take corrective action.The Constittution didn’t guarantee the Pres to remove Vice anytime He wanted.This removal of Vice is clearly Violation of nation Constitutional.There is no way to prevent chaos,unless Kiir step down.

    • 3 August 2013 13:49, by Kenyang

      ODINGO,
      FORMER VP, RIEK INSULTED HIS OWN GOV’T WHERE HE IS VP FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS. HE REJECTED ANY RESPONSIBILITY (CORRUPTION, NEPOTISM, ETC), KEEP ERRATICAL CAMPAIGNS AGAINST HIS OWN PARTY (SPLM) 2 YRS AWAY FROM ELECTIONS WHILE REMAINING VP. WHERE ELSE HAVE YOU EVERY HEARD THAT? LIKE 1991, DR. RIEK IS DANGERIOUSLY AIMING TO DIVIDE SPLM AND EVENTUALLY THE COUNTRY. HE’S SUPPOSED TO BE IN JAIL.

        mangor/idiot,internal party challenges is the normal practice over the globe.Dr.Machar right to challenges the SPLM led Government becoz the former freedom fighters turned looters, corrupter,money embezzlers,tribalism promoters,nepotist,dictators,assassins,Killers of journalists,anti-democrats n selfish bourgeoisie class.Concerning your ignorance claims that early campaign is

        • 4 August 2013 04:01, by Bentiu son

          premature is due to your lack of following up the country affairs,u idiot should know that Dr.Machar told his colleagues in Cabinet meeting three months ago that he will challenge the incompetent President Kiir at upcoming SPLM National Convention that supposed to be conducted last May 2013 whereby SPLM members could elected a new SPLM Chairman who can contest with others political parties in RSS

    • 3 August 2013 14:14, by william

      Dear Odingo, Riak himself as a former vice president had accepted that president has constitutional right to removes and appoint vice president. I think you are still riak gatekeeper in Khartoum come back home and go through our national transition constitution. Do try to talk about what you do not know.

  • 3 August 2013 12:19, by Odingo

    President Kiir is a good President from the begining. He began his leadership by united all different force through peaceful dialogue.Something Dr. Garang failed to accomplish. Everyone gave Dr Kiir credit for that.but he failed to bring 75 officials who stole 4.2 billion US dollars to face justice.That issue alone make him president.Kiir is a good President, but his advisers make him a bad pres

  • 3 August 2013 13:31, by william

    I really agree today that our national legislative assembly is trying it best make the way forward for betterment of our nation as they are doing background check on new cabinet. That will help the to rule out both traitors and tested failed ministers. Let`s avoid reinstating dysfunctional individuals ultimately regardless of their political strength.

  • 3 August 2013 14:21, by Malou Makuei

    I hope kirr will learn what democracy is this time! congra my country parliament for those background checks. kirr has to be checked also if he got drunk while giving a decree, coz he left out the country’s’ ministry of health excluded in the first list.

    • 3 August 2013 15:05, by SSforlife

      Hahaha Malou, that’s why he appointed more drunkets so that they can turn S. Sudan to Republic Drinking S. Sudan. While the nation is suffering.

  • 3 August 2013 18:35, by Naath Raani

    Guys, Kiir’s administration is dead ended. He knew he lost his popularity from SPLM party also to entire region. Let wait how things will come up. He is ready to be cow taker in Warrap state
