ALLAFRICA 22 FEB 2020

South Sudan’s key peace parties have failed to submit nominations for the 550-member transitional legislative assembly “over internal disagreements.”

Parties should have presented the names to the National Constitutional Amendment Committee (NCAC) by today, but the Revitalised Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission says only the Former Detainees (FDs) had presented their list by deadline day.

The NCAC says efforts to build consensus on these lists are ongoing.

The failure to nominate candidates for MP posts means key parties could fail to meet the February 22 deadline to create all arms of the transitional government.

The transitional legislative assembly is supposed to pass key legal frameworks during this period such as ratifying the merger of armies, budgetary allocation and laws on administrative issues.

The NCAC has written to President Salva Kiir informing him that the list of nominees is not ready and that NCAC will present it as soon as it is.

Parties were supposed to nominate candidates and also meet legal requirements for youth, gender and special needs. The validated members would then make up a body to act as Parliament for the next three years.

The country had until Saturday February 22 to form the unity government.
