CPA | Press Release
Nov 30th, 2020 (Thessherald)–The Center for Peace and Advocacy (CPA) is highly concerned over the delayed formation of the states’ governments by the parties to the agreement. This is a worrying and disturbing sign that all is not well, raising an eyebrow about the parties seriousness of returning the country back to sustainable peace, security, justice, development and the rule of law.
For a fully functioning Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU) to be realized, the peace agreement stipulates the appointment of Governor of the Upper Nile State, Speakers of State Legislatures, State Councils of Ministers and County Commissioners, something that has not happened until now.
The unnecessary delay in the formation of the states’ governments is creating an atmosphere of uncertainty and a power vacuum. The Center for Peace and Advocacy (CPA) regrets this delay and urges the parties to show some seriousness and commitment in resolving the states issue. The formation of the states’ governments is a pre-requisite to a stable R-TGoNU and a peaceful and secure South Sudan.
The Center for Peace and Advocacy (CPA) is sounding the alarm bell and urges the parties to expedite the formation of the state government and call on the peace guarantors to help bridge the gap where they have been deadlocked. The South Sudanese cannot wait any longer; delaying the formation is giving them a very bleak picture of the direction the parties to the agreement are taking them.
The Center for Peace and Advocacy (CPA) is therefore calling the international community to help pressurize the parties because the deadlock on the states issue is a sign of worse things yet to come.
