August 12, 2014 (JUBA) – The South Sudanese government said Tuesday that it will oppose any proposal to dissolve elected institutions on grounds that it will set a “bad precedent”.

“We have discussed and communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region and with the international community that any proposal seeking to dissolve the elected institutions will not be acceptable, because it will set a bad precedent," said vice-president, James Wani Igga.

“Dissolving elected institutions violate the constitution and that is a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start working against the constitution instead of upholding it," he added.

Igga, formerly the speaker of the legislative assembly, urged members of the United Nations and the international community to take clear positions on how the country’s conflict can be resolved.

Foreign affairs minister, Barnaba Marial equally echoed the vice-president’s stance, saying dissolution of elected institutions would compromise constitutional and democratic principles.

“As the government, we welcomed the visit of the Security Council. This visit will help the world understand the dynamic of this conflict with firsthand knowledge. They will have the opportunity to visit all parts of the country. They will visit those affected and those which have not experienced the violence. We would facilitate their movement so that they get the real information”, he told reporters Tuesday.

Marial said the world should support his government in its quest to resolve political differences with the opposition in order to bring lasting peace and stability to the country.

“We would like the United Nations, the African Union and the GAD member countries to clearly come out and take strong position with the government to end this conflict. We want the peace process to proceed in order to end the current humanitarian crisis in the country”, he said

The South Sudanese conflict, which started late last year, has killed thousand and displaced over a million people internally and into neighbouring Uganda, Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia.

        James Wani Igga is absolutely right, the Idea of dissolution the elected institution is against the democracy system. Rami Tot, Wang,and Bolman please,there are only two choices in South Sudan and 1- is to accept peace deal which mean the war will stop and 2- refusal and continues fighting which is the harder choice for Riek Machar to take. Barking on the people at network will not solve any-thing

          Was the organised murder of hundreds of innocent civilians by the Presidents Guard allowed by the constitution or not?

          Rebecca Garang has explained at length how Saliva Kiir has undermined the constitution of the country and the party.

          Has that elected institution the parliament disapproved of the December murders? It said nothing. It is useless and should be re-formed.

            Kiir has no choice but to make peace on the terms dictated by UNSC.

            He must take Riek back as Vice President.

            He must allow reforms to party structures and to the constitution. The powers of the presidency must be diluted.

    In the next coup, Nuer civilians will stay far away from getting involved! Their actions on December 15,16 and 17th brought misery to them. They should blame their kin soldiers who distributed weapons to them in order to help fight for Nuer power! You blissfully killed Dinkas in 91 and walked away escort free but we got you this time and we follow you to Upper Nile where stupidity never ends!

    Why desolving elected institutions, when second vp has been offered?...It would be an insult to the Dinkas whom Riek have been killing since 91.Desolution of elected institutions mean the same to the presidency.This rebellion is fading away, Dinkas and gov’t should not accept any useless demand from the rebels.

    UNSC team must investigate non affected and affected regions so that they should get reliable information. They will not get reliable information from nuer living in UN camps since are rebels and family of the rebels. They give information based on interest of their greedy leaders on rebel side.

    Dear friends
    Notice that if there is no reform, means nuer will continue fighting and this time will kill and destroy everything. I know that Government Soldiers Morality is low and can not fight unless Uganda comes in. Nuer are ready to fight till the last born child of 2014.
