South Sudan Peace Agreement Text

The full text of the revitalized Agreement on conflict resolution in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) is available in the pa-X Peace Agreements database. The peace agreement reached in Juba is a historic milestone for the Sudanese people in their quest for a peaceful and prosperous country. IGAD congratulates the Sudanese government and the Sudanese Revolutionary Front for reaching a historic peace agreement for the good of the Sudanese people. The comprehensive final agreement was signed on 9 January 2005 and marked the beginning of implementation activities. It is IGAD`s sincere hope that other armed and non-signatory actors to the peace agreement will soon join their brothers and sisters in ending the suffering. It is essential that all Sudanese participate in the future of their country and contribute to the well-being of their country. IGAD recognizes that a peaceful and prosperous Sudan is in the interest of the region, which must be guided by the good example of unified, inclusive and visionary leadership. IGAD congratulates the President of the Sovereign Council of the Republic of Sudan, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the Sudanese Prime Minister and President of IGAD, H.E. Abdalla Hamdok, and all the leaders of the armed groups that signed the peace agreement On 11 October 2007, the SPLM withdrew from the Government of National Unity (GoNU). We blame the central government for violating the conditions of the CPA. In particular, the SPLM notes that the government in Khartoum, dominated by the National Congress Party, has not withdrawn more than 15,000 troops from the southern oil fields and has not complied with the protocol on Abyei.

The SPLM has made it clear that it will not return to war, while analysts have found that the agreement has been disintegrating for some time, in part due to the international focus on the conflict in neighbouring Darfur. [2] Instead, the question of the number of states and their territorial delimitation appears as a catalyst for two parallel logics of the South Sudanese political power game: the logic of the political market and the logic of ethnopolitics. The logic of the market pushes the actors to what Alex de Waal has called a wage peace – an extension of government positions to several levels, which guarantee the effective involvement of a large number of strongmen and power blocs by putting them on the government`s payroll. Each of the 32 states should have a functioning national government, which provides prestigious and remunerated positions to a considerable number of incumbents, and their creation is therefore essential to achieving wage peace. The peace process was supported by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and partners from IGAD, a consortium of donor countries. The SPLM announced that it would return to government on 13 December 2007 following an agreement. The agreement stipulates that the seat of government will rotate every three months between Juba and Khartoum, while it would seem that this will be largely symbolic, as will the financing of a census (essential to the referendum) and a timetable for the withdrawal of troops by the border. [3] The process resulted in the following agreements (also called protocols): IGAD also recognizes and praises the mediation role of the Government of South Sudan led by H.E. .
