Political parties demand representation in Ruweng government

Political parties in South Sudan’s Ruweng state have complained that they were not represented in the state cabinet by Governor Them Machar.

Anter Ayok, representative of the other political parties in Ruweng state, told Radio Tamazuj on Wednesday that they need to be represented in the state cabinet saying their parties are represented in the state parliament only.

The signed 2015 peace agreement gives the council of ministers in each of the three states of Unity, Jonglei and Upper Nile 46% for the SPLM faction led by Salva Kiir, 40% for the SPLM-IO faction, 7% for the SPLM-FDs and 7% for the other political parties.

Ruweng governor could not immediately be reached for comment.
