JUBA, 08 January, 2016 [Gurtong]– Community Empowerment for Progress Organisation (CEPO) a civil society group in South Sudan has applauded South Sudan parties for agreeing on the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) ministerial portfolio.

CEPO's Executive Director, Mr. Edmund Yakani said that the latest action automatically wins the citizens' trust and confidence towards effective implementation of the peace agreement.   

He believes the applied consensus by the primary parties to the peace agreement in distributing the national ministries, is a remarkable step for enhancing effective implementation of the peace agreement.

"... Politics without consensus is not healthy. The parties should embrace consensus approach because being rigid in resolving political difference, always demonstrate self-interests. We need a demonstration of political culture that places public and national interest on top agenda," stressed Mr. Yakani.

Additionally, the Director told Gurtong that his organisation, CEPO, strongly congratulates the leadership of the JMEC for the effective leadership that made the primary parties apply a consensus approach to implement the peace accord accordingly.

"... Of course, this is the role we have been expecting from JMEC as a key catalyst to the peace process. We really encourage it to continue in the same pace in ensuring proper implementation of all modalities as agreed. We are proud of the JMEC and we want to assure it that we are behind it."
