November 20, 2012 (RUMBEK) - The Lakes State Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) chairperson, Daniel Awet Akot, has ended the political deadlock caused by the appointment of Mabor Ater Dhuol as Lakes State SPLM secretary.

Dhuol’s replacement of the late Samuel Mathiang Keer was unconstitutional, according to members of the state parliament.

The Lakes State assistant secretaries, county chairpersons and county secretaries emerged from a closed-door meeting at the party secretariat office on Monday.

Akot, who is the Deputy Speaker of of South Sudan’s parliament, called for the unity of party members and urged them to focus on building a better nation.

“There is nothing to be imposed,” said Awet in reference to Dhuol’s appointment.

Akot denied rumours circulating on Monday that Dhuol would be appointed by force. He asked that it was objected to by the majority, “how can I swear him in at 6am as people of wrong wishers claim?”

In October the Lakes state SPLM assistant secretary for political affairs, Malou Moses Majok, has said that he feared for his safety following a disagreement with the state party chairperson, in which Daniel Awet Akot controversially appointed Mabor Ater Dhuol, replacing Samuel Mathiang Keer as the state party acting secretary.

    It is very good news that the Lakes state Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) chairperson, Daniel Awet Akot, has ended the political deadlock caused by the appointment of Mabor Ater Dhuol as Lakes state SPLM secretary.Being a leader doesn’t mean that whatever you propose must be executed all time, expect some disagreement will come out. And you have to sympathize with the majority votes.Than

    Thank you Cde Daniel Awet for not imposing Mabor Ater on the people of Lakes State. We hope you will obey that. Leadership in the contemporary society should be people- driven. And the people of Lakes State have stood up and registered their rejection of Mabor openly and clearly. It’ll count so much if Awet does not withdraw the appointment of Mabor and bring in a real SPLM/A cadre to replace MK.

    Should not remain in a stalemate but discuss to find a good solution for everyone.
