June 26, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The African Union and the IGAD have proposed to postpone the formation of the Transitional Legislative Assembly and to form the two other institutions to meet the demands of the region and establish civilian-led authority before the end of June.

Last week, IGAD Mediator for Sudan Mahmoud Dirir proposed that both the Transitional Military Council (TTMC) and the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) be represented by 7 members at the disputed Sovereign Council, in addition to an independent civilian be agreed by the two sides.

Also, the proposal says the FFC will nominate a government of technocrats to lead the country during the 3-year transitional period and will appoint 67% of the transitional legislative assembly.

The TMC declined the proposal and claimed that the head of IGAD Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed promised them that Dirir will work with the AU Special Envoy for Sudan Mohamed El Hacen Lebatt who had already submitted a different draft agreement.

In their joint draft agreement, Dirir and Labatt came back with the same proposals just they delay the formation of the transitional parliament for the time being and to start with the collegial presidency and the FFC appointed government of technocrats.

The proposal, according to multiple sources that spokes to Sudan Tribune, further refer to the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) the investigation into the killing of peaceful protesters at the pro-democracy sit-in on 3 June.

Recently, the deputy head of the military junta and general commander of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) Mohamed Hamdan Daglo "Hemetti" voiced concerns about the future of his militiamen claiming that the opposition wants to disband his militia.

There are conflicting reports about the position of the military junta as some sources say the TMC head has given his approval for the deal but he demands more time to convince his deputy.

Several international envoys are in Khartoum including the U.S. envoy for Sudan Donald Booth who works to ensure the power transfer to a civilian-led government.

    So the AU and the IGAD have effectively became the new defacto rulers of North Sudan? These the were same creeps who were behaving here over South Sudan and the South Sudanese people like they are some kind of ’colonial headmen’. Here in South Sudan, we used to inform some of our lowly informed losers that if you mess up or lit your house on fire and run to others to come and extinguish your deliberately lit fire on your behave, then those people you asked for help will demand payments for their services. Nothing is free of charge on this planet earth. Even our so-called PhD doctors here in South Sudan are the worse. They don’t even think over the ’costs of their actions’>>>>>

      Here in South Sudan, other countries here in our region even balance their economies over a country like South Sudan and DR Congo. A few years ago, there were problems in Kenya after their disputed elections and even Abesh (so-called ethiopia) were having their own internal issues. But they quickly put their own internal affairs aside and came running to South Sudan and offered their negotiating mediating services to South Sudanese fools even when the creeps where never asked by anyone>>>>

        Our so-called SPLM/A-IO foreign puppets/stooges and traitors were kept in the hotels, brothels and bars of Adis Ababa, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Uganda and North Sudan as their bargaining chips or cards over South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. South Sudan negotiations were to be taken to Mauritania in West Africa. I don’t know that was proposed, but my guessed is, South Sudanese are considered to have been enslaved by North Sudan cloned so-called arabs just like the cloned so-called arabs of Mauritania allegedly enslaved Bantuses of West Africa>>>>>

          Libya was bombed by the US, the UK and France in 2011 as mercenaries and were paid by their gulf Arab states to do the job. But the African Union (AU), ECOWAS, IGAD and SADC cowered like goats being led into the Nile. But when it comes to South Sudan and South Sudanese people small issues, then every piece of trash in the Africa and even around the world would want to be anyone over South Sudan and the South Sudanese people. Fellows, there are people who just cannot stand this creeps with their love affair with our country and our people, reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM>>>>

            We have informed some of our South Sudanese fools to let us round up everything that is connected to evil white Americans, English people, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, UNIMISS peacekeepers, their evil juus (so-called israelis), Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), some of their Bantuses, their cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan and their gulf Arab states financiers, kill the evils and throw the evils into the Nile and done with them. These vermin will never ever leave our country and our people alone without blood fools. These vermin have hijacked our country and our people>>>
