President Salva Kiir: think of peace before campaigning

Author : | Published: Tuesday, July 30, 2013

President Salva Kiir is calling on all politicians who plan to stand in the 2015 General Elections to avoid early campaigns and concentrate on uniting South Sudan.

President Kiir was speaking at an event organized by the Red Army Foundation at Nyakuron Cultural Center in Juba.

He said that there is not yet a proper law from the elections commission to guide the process.

“This not the time for campaigns. We do not have the constitution, our parties are not yet registered and we have not conducted our census and even if we want to conduct a population census, we don’t have money,” he told the crowd.  “If you want leadership, it does not mean that you have to shout for it, it needs people to go back to their institutions of their party.”

President Salva Kiir  also said the South Sudan will continue to engage in dialogue with Sudan to resolve post-independence issues.

“We remain as usual in cordial relations (with them),” he said. “We also do not want to go war with them, although there are people who are saying that people are now going to war. No, we are not going to war with them and we will not go to war with anybody.”

President Salva Kiir will address the Martyrs Day commemoration at Doctor John Garang mausoleum in Juba.
