SSOA says allocation of S. Sudan state governors comply with peace pact


May 8, 2020 (JUBA) - The South Sudan Opposition Alliance n Friday called on the SPLM-IO to accept the allocation of state governors stressed that the presidency observed the decision-making process provided in the peace agreement.

Josephine Lagu Yanga (ST photo)On Thursday, the SPLM-IO leader rejected the allocation of state governors in a meeting chaired of the collegial presidency chaired by President Salva Kiir because it allocated the Upper Nile State a stronghold of the SPLM-IO to SSOA.

In a letter to Augustino Nioroge, head of the peace implementation monitoring body RJMEC, FVP Riek Machar pointed out that the decision ignored the prominence of the parties and was not taken by consensus.

In response, the alliance issued a press statement saying that the revitalized peace agreement provides that the decision making in the presidency requires collegial collaboration.

"Hence, the resolution that was issued yesterday by the Presidency is in accordance with sub-article The president, the First Vice President, and the Vice Presidents shall seek to reach an agreement on matters of executive administration and failure to which by agreement of at least (04) of them".

"The decision of yesterday was by 5 against 1 which in our view is democratic in nature and therefore binding on all in the Presidency as an institution," stressed the SSOA.

With regard to the prominence of each Party has in each of the respective State, the SSOA said their alliance is the only neutral party that can unite the communities in Upper Nile and ensure peace and stability in South Sudan.

"Furthermore, SPLM/IO should understand that the state that falls under their authority will be governed as a part of the country and not as independent or autonomous states," said the statement.

Machar in his letter urged the intervention of RJMEC chair stressing that the decision violated the peace agreement in several areas.

In addition to the prominence, he pointed out that the OPP, another small coalition did not get a state as provided in the rule of power-sharing defined in the peace agreement.

In its statement, the SSOA spoke about the spirit of compromise by OPP pointing it enabled the SPLM-IG to have six states, as it demanded.

"This was in line with the proposal of RJMEC Interim Chair proposing that OPP forgo its gubernatorial seat in exchange with senior positions in the state governments," said the statement.

It further disclosed that the SPLM-IG compensated OPP with two deputy governor positions and others.

      South Sudan is happy with allocation of the states except Reik and his family. Majority of IO generals defected to our government. Reid alone and his family will last long. Poor Dr. Wanted will surrender soon.

    Let wait and see how those state govts will be formed based on that devilishly allocated states. The SPLM Io leadership initially shouldn’t trust that regime and renegotiate parts of agreement. Every step should be done by the book. Salva kiir and JCE are NOT TRUSTWORTHY!!!

    Your uncle Riek Machar is telling some of his friends that, he is failing all time because of Nuers behaviors adding that, the Dinka couldn’t trust my tribe Nuers he said but now when you see appointment then, one can say he has a problem too.

    • 11 May 2020 01:40, by choldit

      Let wait and see what the defection will do. Dr. Machar have never, is not and will never be a problem to this nation, South Sudan. He is the reason why we have a sovereign state call South Sudan. All he is doing is to get it a sound democratic nation. There is nothing wrong with SPLM IO under Dr Machar, believe me dude!
