Establishment of the new cabinet, Tor Deng Mawien said, will however occur after parliament has amended the constitution to extend Kiir’s mandate.

“There is a need to move this country forward in accordance with the national slogan of one nation, one president. The president will in July after the amendment of the constitution will form an all-inclusive government. All the stakeholders will be represented”, stressed the presidential aide on decentralisation and inter-government linkage.

According to Mawien, South Sudan’s proposed new coalition government will include other political parties not in the government.

“Its [cabinet] objectives will [be to] work for peace, unite internal front, promote forgiven and reconciliation and pursue lasting peace,” further disclosed the aide to the South Sudanese leader.

“It will also work to consolidate cohesion, building consensus, security and order,” he added.

The country’s lawmakers, Mawien further said, will soon start deliberations on proposed areas of the constitution to be amended so as to in avoid a possible power vacuum and constitutional crisis likely to occur when government’s term expires in July.

He however urged citizen to support the incumbent president in and his government in their search for peace and restoration of law and order in some parts of the country currently under rebels’ control.

Last month, members of South Sudan cabinet agreed to extend, through parliament, the mandate of the president and the national legislature for an additional two years.

South Sudan’s National Elections Commission had initially set 30 June as election date.

    A way to kill people like King Malong who are growing horns daily. He will be posted somewhere as a minister to dethrone dangerous powers of his Mathiang-Anyor malitias. Otherwise what is the need for an inclusive government without peace achieved.

    All the cabinet including president Kiir and legislative assembly do not have the right to amend the constitution to extend their terms. If they do that, they are ruling us illegally. We need peace now and we should go to ballots to choose our leader. All these banana heads have failed us in the last ten year. We have had enough of them, we need new blood.

    "one nation, one president!" Although the slogan reveals some residues of political amateurism, the idea notwithstanding, is not bad. Kiir eeyo!!

      The butcher, Kiir, continues to escape being held accountable for the massacre of 400 civilians at Gudele police station in December 2015.

      How can he be trusted in future if there are no constitutional powers with the integrity to challenge him?

    We all need PEACE ASAP. With the terms of peace, we then create inclusive government with equal representation of all Political Parties.
    Enough is enough with these cowboy hats and SPLM in Government and In Opposition.

    Some idiots in South Sudan think that without Kiir will stop to exist as a country. This is just stupidity. We have to grow up and start looking beyond Kiir or Machar. Our people in the villages are not gaining from the government but they are surviving.This is the same mentality people had about Garang. When he died we are able to survive.We should emancipate ourselves from this mentality.

      The problem is Riek and his people have taken a bad channel of change.The July 2015 which was seen to be too long is now the shortest compared to military takeover

    Dear Readers
    Formation of an all-inclusive government in July without peace will give a chance to those who will be excluded in the current government to join the rebels’ .mark my words. The only solution to S-Sudan crisis is election or otherwise the guns will not silent for ever and ever

    The problem of South Sudan did not start with the rebellion of Riak, the problem started right after independence. The rampant killing in Juba and other places, grave corruptions etc. This is actually a calculated move by some few who wanted to impose their hegemony on the rest of us. The rebellion of Riak came as a result of targeted killing of Nuer in Juba. Who is stupid?
