The Commission, mandated to oversee the implementation of the Revitalized Peace Agreement, has also highlighted pending tasks and upcoming timelines for the next 15 days (D-Day +30) as envisaged by the Agreement signed on 12 September 2018 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Activities implemented include nominations and appointment of the National Pre-Transitional Committee (NPTC), which was constituted by the President of the Republic of South Sudan on Tuesday, September 26, the Permanent Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements (PCTSA) workshop, and several declarations of commitment to the R-ARCSS by the Parties.

The Commission notes that the ongoing Pre-Transitional activities include ratification of the Agreement by the leadership of the various Parties, the dissemination of the signed R-ARCSS by the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), preparation for the urgent actions required from the Mediation to kick-start the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement and reconstitution of the various Boards and Commissions of the Agreement.

The Commission observes further that progress has been made in the area of confidence building, through declarations by the Parties, celebration to mark the signing of the R-ARCSS,  dialogue between the Party leaders and invitations extended to all opposition leaders to visit Juba.

However, the Commission also notes that while the deadlines for the appointment of the National Pre-Transitional Committee (NPTC) and the convening of the PCTSA workshop, and reconstitution of the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangement Monitoring and Verification Mechanism (CTSAMVM) Board have been adhered to, others have been missed.

As the Parties and Stakeholders continue to nominate their representation to the various Agreement institutions and mechanisms, the Commission urges the Parties to give due consideration to gender and age representation in selecting their nominees, and to expedite the process of reconstituting and establishing them.

“The Parties should adhere to the provisions of the permanent ceasefire, and hold violators accountable. The R-ARCSS should also be widely disseminated by the Parties and all stakeholders, and the R-ARCSS should be ratified by the TNL,” the Commission added.
