The leader of the South Sudan National Movement for Change said Saturday the party is ready for the 2024 general election which is expected to usher in a democratically-elected government.

SSNMC is a party under the umbrella of the South Sudan Opposition Alliance.

Its chairman, Moro Isaac Jenesio, was reacting to the recent survey on public perceptions about the peace deal and the upcoming elections.

“As a political party we are ready for the election we think that the election is the only way can bring a legitimate government for the people of South Sudan,” Moro told Eye Radio.

Last week, a survey on public perceptions of the revitalized peace agreement found that the citizens are ready for the 2024 elections with or without a permanent constitution in place.

The survey conducted in 15 of the most populated towns across the country in April and May 2022, was made public during a civil society organizations’ meeting in Juba on Tuesday.

According to the researchers, the purpose of the survey is to know people’s feelings and perceptions about the 2018 peace accord.

According to the perceptions survey, many South Sudanese say they feel prepared to vote in December 2024 elections.

Hon. Moro, who is also the Minister of Local Government and Law Enforcement in Central Equatoria State, says the current government is of the agreement and that election is the only for South Sudanese to vote in a legitimate government.

“The current government that we are running is the government of an agreement or government of parties that in most cases does not address the concerns of the common people.”

“It is about the government of positions, and the challenges is that most of the people accommodated in this government are unable to point the concern that people would want to see addressed.”

“But by the election, the people will be able to have the right to see who they think can be able to represent them, and they can be able to interact with and communicate their voice, and of course work for prosperity of individual and Constituencies.”

Moro Isaac was speaking on the sideline of his party’s second leadership retreat in Juba on Saturday.

The event was attended by over 80 party members mainly serving government officials in the national and states level.
