Accordingly, the SSOA was given Jonglei State instead of the Upper Nile State.

Stephen Lual, a spokesman of the South Sudan Patriotic Movement, one of SSOA factions, told Sudan Tribune that consultations are underway among the alliance leaders over the nomination of the governor.

"The final decision will be announced after a meeting that will be held with the Vice-President Hussein Abdelbagi," he further said.

Also, he pointed out that SSOA members discussed the appointment of the state ministers and agreed on the ratios.

Sources close to the alliance agreed that the Jonglei governor should be from the state.

      Midit Mitot,

      You just focus on IO business. Leave SSOA business to SSOA. When people need to share your ideas in anything in South Sudan, you will be informed, but for now, stay away from other organization businesses. Nuer killed thousand of people in Jnglei in 1991 and in 2013, but now you want to recommend to people of Jonglei something, no, you are not welcome.

    I know what SS are looking for is only the position in the government to do away with national resources with no service delivery to the general public living at Grassroot level.What a shameful gvt that its concern is money and no any other thing that is at its mind to do to the people.I really got scared to be a citizen of this Country. No strategic plans and looting of the resources are rampant.

    you act wisely, if you keep complaining, it would expose your being small. Those whom are heavy weight has already agreed and you should appreciate

      Nueri Dial,

      Riek is not a heavey weight and he will not be a heavy weight in South Sudan. He is a vice president because the heavy weight guy is heading the country. Riek is far, far behind Kiir. When change arrives, the best way to deal with it is not to resist, but to adapt. Kiir is too much power and people who struggle to see that are like those who struggle to realize changes.

        South South,
        Kirimnal mayar is just a symbol and the whole world knew it. Dr.Riek has achieved: SS independent, back to 10 state, demand for UNS,institutional reform, needs for national army etc. You like to enjoy his ideas but you hate him simply b/se he is not from your tribe, It is called jealousy. I wish he demand to sleep with Mama Ayen as he did for Nyandeng in present of Dr.John

        All jienge states must be revoked and turned into open grazing lands for cows and reserves for wild animals. Most educated (if any), politicians, rich thieves are all in Juba, Kenya, Uganda or Sudan. Only the old, sick, hungry and dying are left behind and they surely can’t run states on their own. No governor, no nothing. These states are for looting and idling.
