November 18, 2018 (JUBA) - The opposition People’s Democratic Movement (PDM) which is a non-signatory of the revitalized peace agreement, said confused and disappointed following a threat by the IGAD to declare the holdout groups as spoilers of peace and called to open the deal for negotiations.

The IGAD Council of Ministers on 16 November directed the IGAD Special Envoy for South Sudan Ismail Wais to reach out the non-signatories to join the peace agreement. The executive body which also includes the South Sudanese foreign minister further said they would "be labelled spoilers of the peace process" if they reject this ultimatum.

"PDM and the oppressed people of South Sudan are most dismayed that the IGAD and Council of Ministers who followed Foreign Minister Nhial Deng Nhial’s lead and steer to label PDM and legitimate opposition colleagues as peace spoilers," said a statement extended to Sudan Tribune signed by PDM Chairperson Hakim Dario.

Dario further went to say that the peace guarantors are "siding with the incumbent President use of R-ARCSS as his latest Trojan horse to gain legitimacy, backed by Sudan and Uganda and other IGAD countries tacit support".

During the revitalization process, Dario repeatedly accused the IGAD mediation team of ignoring its proposals, particularly that one related to the establishment of a three provinces federal system during the transitional period.

In his statement, the PDM leader who is also the SSOA-Sawaka Secretary for Foreign Relations, called on the African Union together with AU Peace and Security Council (AUPSC), TROIKA and the UN Security to rethink the role of IGAD mediation and its impartiality in the approach to the resolution of the conflict in South Sudan.

He further proposed to open up R-ARCSS to "incorporate provisions for establishment of a Federal Government during the transitional period, and power-sharing between the people of Upper Nile, Equatoria, and Bahr al Ghazal, in three-states or regions as echoed by the National Dialogue Steering Committee".

The government-appointed National Dialogue body proposed in a report released on 23 October to revert back to the three colonial provinces of Bahr al-Ghazal, Equatoria and Upper Nile and to restore with it the same subdivision of administrative districts as they had existed before.

The opposition group further cast doubt on the participation of the IGAD countries in the UN Regional Protection Force saying they are largely part of the conflict.

Instead, he proposed to reach out the Economic Community of West African States and other countries out of the IGAD bloc contribute to a restructured RPF.

On Friday, the PDM issued a statement describing the revitalized peace agreement as a power-sharing deal between the elites of the at the expense of all the 64 tribes of our people.

"The R-ARCSS needs to be re-opened to make it into a people-centric agreement, with 33% power-sharing allocation to each of the three regions of Upper Nile, Equatoria and Bahr al-Ghazal," said the non-signatory group.

    Hakim,
    You and your PDM need to rethink, not IGAD, IGAD is working perfectly fine with peace. Whether you and terrorist group regretting or not, we’ll not reopen anything, so it will be up-to you to just join us in the revitalize peace implementation or something else. There’s game this time around, we’re putting it straight up. We’ve made an exclusive call on all opposition groups in Khartoum, b

      - but you turned down the government call, now you trying to get around with a crazy proposal after you’re labelled as negative and terrorist elements? Whether you are dismayed or not, now the choice is yours, if you remain pursuing your terrorist activities or start a new peace talk. The power sharing is already made, 4-5 vps are there. Spoil the peace and the state deal with you accordingly!

        IGAD incacerated Riak for 2 years in the end, the "terrorist" was given a red carpet welcome back. So what? Dario and Gen Cirillo will in the end come out as victors. Angelo Beda of the ND has already suggested the 3-regions system that is federal, exactly what PDM/NAS want. Federalism is there to stay. Be prepared to go and develop yourself, lazy jienge

          You can’t just create something from something, 3 regions are already there, if an old people like you don’t know that, the conflict broke out at the present of 3 regions, 3 stupid regions are not the solution for this problem. Rebels or holdout groups should just come up with something that thinkable. If they don’t have anything in their mind, then let them come back shamelessly

Surely, you cant expect Equatorians to come and wipe your naked butts, babysit and develop you. NO. Wake up. 3 federal regions is the solution so that hard working Equatorians can move on. Who cares about you, bush nigga?

      Hakim needs to join peace in South Sudan and shut up. He can not fight IGAD. When Gordon Mortat refused 1972 peace agreement he moved to London, so if Hakim insists to reject peace in South Sudan he needs to move somewhere else. Any rebellion MUST have link with outside to exist. If South Sudan neighbors are against rebellion then you are done.

      Fact is, its no longer jienges to decide what peace to their taste will be established in South Sudan.You trolls are cornered.Better think about your early exodus back to Bahr El Ghazal,before its too late.The mafia organization IGAD has many internal issues to worry about.There are more powerful forces above IGAD which IGAD wouldn’t dare mess up with.Bye bye MTNs!

          Jienges tried to defeat Riak and the Nuers and in the end, they simply gave in. Oh yes, PDM/NAS will bring development to SS, jienges will be trained to develop themselves and we shall tell investors to go to jiengestans. We could also send in Equatorian "experts" to civilize you. So keep cool jienge. We could review kokora so that you are allowed to squat longer in Juba

Bush Natives, perhaps Rhino can come in with 20 cows, 5 V8s and $20,000 and buy you off. No problems. Jienges are only after cash and thats why so many chose to be jellaba slaves

    I think any non signatory of the revitalization peace agreement in South Sudan must be be label them as a terrorist people, because there is no point to demanding Federal system when 70% of the population are not educated. If they have common sense then, they should have seen people suffering in the camps and peaceful living is needed now. Yes, we wanted to sitting down to decide what system will.

        PDM and NAS are true Equatorian movements and we all have the obligation to rally and mobilize our youth behind them. Federalism/kokora or death. I understand jienges are "traumatized" after they were kicked out of Equatoria. We paid them off and each was to go back to his luak. They chose to go to the SPLA not for liberation of SS but out of bitterness. Who cares anyway? We have our goal

            Angelo Beda who was selected to chair the ND has done a wonderful job by proposing 3 regions on the basis of federalism/kokora. As an Equatorian we support him cuz this is exactly what PDM/NAS/SSNMC stand for. Jienges may squeal and quirk but the kiirminal will finally give in. Jienges should not be scared of federalism cuz all devolution and progess comes from it. Beda, Equatoria oyee!

                  Thank you. This is precisely what we want: 3 federal regions with rotational presidency. Once this is adopted as a viable agenda, I guess PDM/NAS/SSNMC will join the ND. We want clear exit proposals of getting jienges back to develop their luaks as what Dr Garang envisioned. SS can’t move by huge numbers of illiterates, idlers and squatters. They must be "whooped" to work harder.

    Continue: I have studied the political science and I had read many governments system around the world but I have not found a primitiveness people and non civilization societies started with Federal system of the government. Also the government system has to be decide by the people within the country and should not be imposed through peace agreement. For many years, Cirillo was under dictatorship.
