YAMBIO, 12 August 2015 [Gurtong] – The Governor says an agreeable power sharing deal would be the best as the country reels from endless conflicts, spanning nearly two years.

He had urged the negotiation team to consider engaging all the warring parties in the power sharing arrangement during the interim period.

“I think it would be very important to accord the opposition a good share of power since the 25 percent allocated to the opposition was dismal.

Governor Bakosoro’s sentiments echo those made by South Sudan’s political parties on the power sharing agreement between the SPLM and opposition parties.

“There is need to adhere to the Arusha agreement and politicians should not renege to divide power among themselves as this will only lead to more conflicts”, he said.

He at the same time urged South Sudanese to unite as they search for lasting peace.

He also appealed to the international community to continue collaborating with the South Sudanese leaders in pursuing peace.
