SPLM-IO Taban faction urges opposition to get prepared for elections
Dhieu Mathok, Secretary General of the SPLM-IO faction under the leadership
of the country’s First Vice President, Taban Deng Gai, has urged the
opposition fighting against the regime to join the dialogue process and get
prepared for the upcoming elections.
Chapter 1, Article 16 of the peace agreement is about general elections in
South Sudan. The agreement says that the President and First Vice President
will agree on the formation of a National Elections Commission.According to
the 2015 peace deal, the elections must take place 60 days before the end
of the transitional period, which will be in 2018.“We have one year ahead
to prepare for elections… the implementation of the peace agreement is now
progressing well , so we urge the armed opposition to join the national
dialogue process,” Dhieu said.
Dhieu said in an interview with Radio Tamazuj on Thursday that the people
of South Sudan need a renewed leadership.” So people should get prepared so
that there is a renewed leadership in the country and even a new style of
leadership. Those who want power it is their chance to get prepared for
elections,” he said.
Dhieu, who is also a ministry for electricity, called on the armed
opposition groups to lay down their arms saying the ongoing conflict is
senseless. “Now there is a pogrom for reforms in the country, we are
implementing the signed peace agreement,” he said.
He stressed that the signed peace agreement is still alive and that the
unity government is working for peace and stability in the country.
