SPLM, former detainees to present joint power sharing proposal

Author : | Published: Sunday, June 21, 2015

The SPLM Political Bureau says it will form a joint proposal on power sharing with the former detainees and present it to IGAD.

The decision was made during a meeting between President Salva Kiir and four members from the former detainees in Juba yesterday.

They include Deng Alor, John Luk Jok, Kosti Manibe and Chol Thong Mayai.

A member of the SPLM Political Bureau, Akol Paul Kordit says the proposal is aimed at bringing a lasting peace to South Sudan.

“We are working on it to develop a homegrown solution, not a solution to be imposed on us,” Mr Kordit said.

“But a solution that we can share out with our brothers in the SPLM-In opposition and look into it and also see their opinion because this is not one way traffic. We would have to negotiate and make a compromise to reach a solution.”

A Representative from the SPLM Former Detainees, John Luk Jok, says the meeting also sought ways of implementing the Arusha agreement.

IGAD had earlier made a new power sharing proposal for ending the conflict. The document gives the government 53% during the transitional.

The SPLM in Opposition, the former political detainees and other political parties would share the remaining 47%.

However, the government and the SPLM-IO have rejected the proposal.
