“Khartoum Proposal” ends the dispute between the leaders of South Sudan

"Khartoum Proposal" ends the dispute between the leaders of South Sudan

A Sudanese proposal, regarding the structure of the supreme leadership in South Sudan, as part of the security arrangements filed in the agreement, concluded in 2018, ended the differences that almost led to the outbreak of a war between President Salva Kiir Mayardit and his deputy, Riek Machar.

A united leadership” divided by 60% of the government, while the opposition got 40%.

The head of the Sudanese Sovereign Council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, had previously submitted, last March, a proposal to establish a consolidated base for the security and military factions along with the police, to resolve the crisis between Salva Kiir and Machar.

Machar, who leads the opposition “Sudan People’s Liberation Movement” (SPLM), demands that the leadership positions of the Unified Army of Southern Sudan be divided equally between his forces and Salva Kiir’s army, which offered only 40% to the opposition.

Sudan’s mediation succeeded in forcing all parties in the Republic of South Sudan to agree on structuring the country’s senior leadership within the file of security arrangements.

In Juba, the parties signed a document to restructure the senior leadership in all regular forces within the security arrangements clause, in addition to signing a road map, According to the Sudanese news agency “SUNA.”

The “Khartoum proposal” on the “unified command” states that “the parties agreed to implement and commit to stopping hostilities and arrests immediately.”

The proposal also included the issuance of a republican decree within a week allocating jobs to the “popular movement” and other groups, in addition to the opposition’s return to the various mechanisms from which they withdrew and the resumption of their work in what is known as activating the mechanisms of the revitalized peace agreement between the parties.

On the unification of leadership, the security matrix stipulates that the opposition submit the names of its employees to fill positions within a week, with the government’s commitment to accept the names if they meet the competence criteria, according to the proposal.

“The people were worried, but the parties were able to unify the military leadership,” the advisor to the President of South Sudan, Tut Galwak, said during the signing ceremony, adding that “peace has a heavy price that must be paid for the interest of the people and the stability of the country”.
