Monday, June 18, 2018 (PW) — Yesterday the deliberation on the making some breakthrough on the outstanding issues was effective but with several reservations from all parties. The factors that drive their reservations for not making the effective compromises is totally the interest in controlling government power or dominating government decisions.

Each of the party wants to ensure that it has the control and dominance of government power. The gameplay in the room is, the government of national unity wants to maintain the current status quo while all opposition groups want the government of national unity not to maintain the current status quo. This is the political difference on the road for striking a peace deal.

Without getting a middle ground over this political difference, the chance of reaching closure to a deal today will be still far. The intensive interlink consultations are under the challenge of ending without remarkable outcomes if the parties still maintained their rigidity for less or no compromise  if opposition groups want the government to lose maintenance of current status quo while government want to maintain the current status quo

Mr. Edmund Yakani Executive Director of CEPO says of the parties today not to narrow their political difference closure for reaching a peace deal will increase depression and discouragement of the South Sudanese and friends of South Sudan. The parties leadership need to take responsibility for compromises for making peace deal reached.

One thing the parties should bear in mind is that all these attempts of IGAD if failed without results it offers clear ground for other regional and international institutions such as AU and UN to direct take action for making peace prevail as a part of their mandate to ensure citizens are protected.

CEPO calls upon IGAD to officially today brief the citizens on the progress made or not made during the intensive interlink consultations in Addis Ababa
