The Minister of Information says the Transitional Government of National Unity will be established soon before amending the constitution.

Michael Makuei says the Transitional Government of National Unity once established will continue to discuss the issue of the 28 states.

Mr. Makuei made the remark on Tuesday following the fourth meeting of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission in Juba.

“The Transitional Government of National Unity will be set up as soon as possible –and that will be set up as soon as possible without a constitution because we need to move forward and the constitution will follow,” Makuei said.

“The Transitional Government of National Unity will continue to discuss the issue of 28 states, and if the Transitional Government of National Unity fails to agree on the issue of the 28 states, then there will be no further operationalization, that is to say the 28 states will continue until the parties agree, but no more orders on the establishment of the order or further expansion of the 28 states,” he said.

Minister Makuei said The Transitional Government of National Unity is expected to be established in one or two weeks.
