SPLM is operating illegally, says Dr. Adwok Nyaba

The SPLM and other political parties are operating illegally in the county, a member of the National Constitutional Review Commission says.

Dr. Adwok Nyaba said the country is currently in a ‘political void’ because all the political parties, including the ruling party have not been registered as required by the interim constitution.

He made the comment during a public forum organized by the Central Equatoria State civic sub-committee of the NCRC.

“I am a member of SPLM,” said Dr. Adwok.

“But I know that this process we are in is linked to other processes.

“The SPLM is illegal as a political party; any party in South Sudan has no legitimacy, no legal ground for operation.

“So, we are in a kind of political void and nobody is talking about it or everybody is afraid.”

However, SPLM Information Secretary Bol Makueng disagreed.

He said the party has received its mandate by the constitution to run the country.

“We are not ruling this Country illegally because we have the transitional constitution that gives us the mandate to continue. So I think the statement is out of proportion.”

Mr. Makueng said that all political parties in the country have not registered because they don’t have proper documents or an election commission with a proper budget.
