Any proposal on formation of an interim gov’t is upon stakeholders – SPLM 7

Author : | Published: February 21, 2014


An official with the 7 SPLM leaders who were formerly detained and released by the government says any proposal on the formation of an interim government in South Sudan can only be decided upon by all stakeholders in the Addis Ababa talks.

John Luk Jok, who is the spokesperson of the 7 SPLM political leaders, said nobody has suggested setting up a transitional government in South Sudan before next year’s elections.

“The interim government would come about as a decision out of these discussions, and no one party can decide it,” Mr. Luk told Eye Radio in Addis Ababa.

He said the outcome of the peace talks will be based on a consensus of all the participants in the talks.

“But it’s the interim measures that will be taken. If those interim measures and policies are agreed upon during these talks, then the question that will put itself will be: are these enough for the people to get the confidence that they have lost?

“Or should we create a new dispensation that will implement this?”

John Luk said that they have submitted their input on the IGAD’s proposed agenda and hope that the agenda for peace talks will be out soon.
