She added that the signatories to the CPA are still committed to bringing everlasting peace and security to Sudan and its people.

The system of governance which is based on democratic principles of inclusion and transparency, respect for diversity, equitable wealth and power sharing, and respect for human rights should be upheld”, she said.

The chairperson of Unity State Referendum Commission Michael Mayil Chol urged the two partners to respect the right of the people of South Sudan whatever the vote outcome.
