JUBA – Barely a month after the parties to the revitalized peace agreement announced that they have completed all preparations for formation of state governments and remaining national institutions including the revitalized parliament, another deadlock has yet emerged.
Dut Majokdit, a senior member of the SPLM-IO told Sudans Post in an interview this morning that the parties have disagreed over the allocation of national Authorities, special institutions and Independent Commissions.
The senior opposition official said the SPLM-IG under President Salva Kiir Mayardit is demanding 45 out of a total number of 67 institutions giving only 22, just above a quarter of the overall total positions, to all the other signatories to the revitalized peace agreement.
“The Parties to the agreement are on another deadlock over the allocation of independent commissions and National institutions such as teh authorities,” Majokdit said.
“The Authorities, special institutions and independent Commissions are 67, but the ITGONU want the other parties to the revitalized peace agreement to share among themselves only 22 Independent Commissions and the rest to their basket,” the opposition official said.
He further said the group is concerned over the continued delay to the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement which he said is still in chapter one which deal with issues of governance, leaving the security arrangements in chapter 5, behind schedule.
“We shouldn’t dwell much on Chapter 1 of the Peace agreement and the most critical part, the Transitional Security Arrangements, is left behind the door despite the fact that it is the most important part and cornerstone of the revitalized peace agreement,” he said.
