Leaders of the political parties during the meeting congratulated H.E Kiir for peacefully managing the political situation in the country and particularly for reducing the Cabinet to nineteen.

Political party leaders expressed their sincere gratitude to the President for consulting them on formation of the coming new government, which they say shows democratic Governance.

Shortly after the meeting, leader of the South Sudan Democratic Forum (SSDF) Dr. Elia Lumoro told the press on behalf of his colleagues that the meeting came out with a decision that “the parties should send in a list of three nominees” and H.E the President is mandated to select from the list a person whom he believes is fit to be given a portfolio in the coming Government.


South Sudan President Salva Kiir has since come under international pressure to form an inclusive government to avoid political instability.

The African Union Commission and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), together with Canada, Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States have issued a joint statement, urging South Sudan’s leadership to expedite the formation of a new cabinet and calling on all parties in South Sudan to maintain calm and prevent violence .

The Friday statement said “we encourage South Sudan to do so in a manner that reflects the diversity of the South Sudanese people, and in conformity with its Transitional Constitution and the democratic ideals the new country has espoused.”

President Kiir dissolved the whole cabinet on Tuesday and directed the under-secretaries to take charge in their respective ministries under the secretary general of the government, Abdoun Agau, who will run the government until the next cabinet is formed.

He has been holding consultations on the formation of a new government.

Security has been tightened in South Sudan after President Salva Kiir dissolved his entire Cabinet in a move analysts believe is aimed at replacing the corrupt old guard with a new generation of leaders.

The two-year country has been suffering from unprecedented levels of corruption, with ministers, army Generals and police commissioners looting billions of dollars of public funds.

According to four presidential decrees issued on Tuesday night, Kiir fired his Vice President Riek Machar, all cabinet ministers and their deputies and police commissioners.

Machar was blamed for threatening to cause divisions in the country and using inciting language at public functions.

The ruling party’s secretary general and chief negotiator on post succession issues with Sudan, Pagan Amum was also knifed over corruption and inciting public anger.

Kiir ordered an investigation committee headed by the speaker of the parliament and deputy chairman of the party, James Wani Igga, to probe Pagan’s source of wealth.

Observers say this is the largest cabinet reshuffle in the history of South Sudan which is likely to restore confidence among donors that Kiir is determined to tackle corruption.

The president also directed the under-secretaries of all ministries to immediately run South Sudan’s ministries until further notice.

In January this year, Kiir fired 35 military chiefs in what appeared an extraordinary military shakeup in the volatile country.
