Alliance of political parties proposes creation of Prime Minister position
South Sudan’s national alliance of political parties has proposed for creation of the position of Executive Prime Minister during a transitional government of national unity.
Kornelio Kon Ngu, who heads South Sudan’s national alliance of political parties, told Radio Tamazuj on Wednesday that they want President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar excluded from interim arrangements.
The party official pointed out that the amendment of the 2015 peace agreement during the revitalization process should allow the creation of the position of Executive Prime Minister with two deputies.
“We also propose that there should be a president with two deputies and presidential aides in the transitional government of national unity,” he said.
“We want the peace agreement to be renegotiated if the SPLM party does not admit that there were violations,” he said.
Kornelio Kon Ngu, who is also a deputy minister of agriculture, said they also demand for federal governance in the country.
South Sudan’s warring parties are due to resume the peace revitalization process on 5 February, but both sides are competing for territorial gains prior to the negotiations to end the civil war.
