September 4, 2014 (JUBA) – Members of South Sudan cabinet have directed the finance minister to unveil funds for the conduct of the 2015 elections.

“The council of ministers has resolved and directed the ministry of finance to release funds to the National Elections Commission so that they carry out their activities,” information minister Michael Makuei told reporters in the capital, Juba, on Tuesday.

He said the term of the current government officially expires on 8 July 2015.

“This means that by 9 July 2015, a new government should be in place, South Sudan information and broadcasting minister,” Makuei said.

The council of minister reportedly resolved that the national elections commission uses the 2010 constituencies for the upcoming elections.

However, it remains unclear as to how much was required by the electoral body to organize a free, fair and credible electoral process.

Meanwhile, China has signed three categories of grants to fund some projects in the country through its Exim bank.

    South Sudan parliament should first think about bringing peace and stability to the country rather than planning the election who will vote when citizens are still not reconcile and majority of the country’s population are in refugees’ camps and some are still traumatize

    Who is this guy call Michael Makuei fooling here? Which election is he talking about when president Kiir committed his signature to form a transitional government that will run for two and half years, then election will be conducted. I think Makuei has a different agenda, or he is undermining the effort of the president to bring peace. It is a shame to have people like Makuei in government.

    You can not save two spoons at the same time in your mouth. The preparation for election was supposed to started from the beginning of 2014 but I don’t think the fair and balance election would be done smoothly in the short period while, the peace agreement is taking place. My question to Mike Makuei Lueth, how will you do it? Is expiration is worry you? Well, everyone want to see new leader.

    Well guys, don’t be surprised with whatever happened in South Sudan, it is a free country were laws are under people (mighty). This is a golden time for those looters like Makuey & Kiir to grab and conduct an illegally elections in order to secure their seats. Remember that those idiot in the gov’t are using the legitimacy as their song and they fear the expiration of their term, they will not use

      Bypassing or postponing election will make them vulnerable and will have no songs to sing about to convince the world so they have to implement their dirty trick to conduct elections though no body will vote. This is why we South Sudanese who at least have some meaningful mind suggested that let Kiir who has violently failed the country step aside. We were trying to minimise those ill decisions
