South Sudan Yet To Form Transitional Government

Published
the Chairman of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission, Festus Mogae, says he is dissipated that South Sudan has not set up a transitional government. South Sudanese President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar missed a deadline last month to form the new government, in accordance with the Peace Agreement signed in August last year. Implementation of the agreement has stalled because Kiir ordered the creation of 28 states from the existing 10, undermining a power-sharing provision in the deal, which gave Machar's side control of two of the original states.
