Opposition party calls for dialogue among parties to avoid conflict

The Federal Democratic Party led by Gabriel Changson Chang has called on the parties to the revitalized peace agreement to seek dialogue and consult each other on key issues within the extended road map to avoid conflicts.

He revealed these remarks on Saturday during the launch of the party activities at the party headquarter in Rock City suburb of Juba.

“In order to rise above the many challenges South Sudan is facing today, we need to commit to peaceful resolution of the conflict in the republic of South Sudan through meaningful political dialogue, the parties to the agreement should work together in consultative manner to reach decisions that lead to roadmap consensus,” Chang said.

Chang is also the minister of higher education, science and technology in the national unity government.

He said the Federal Democratic Party supports alternative dispute resolution to avoid costly and delayed litigation.

Chang’s remarks came in the aftermath of the dispute between the two leading parties Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-in opposition (SPLM-IO) under First Vice President Riek Machar and SPLM-IG led by President Salva Kiir.

The dispute erupted after President Kiir sacked the minister of defense and veterans Angelina Teny, who is also the wife of Machar.

Chang said the parties in the coalition government must embrace reconciliation and non-violent conflict resolution mechanisms to help unite the country after years of conflict since outbreak in December 2013.

The Federal Democratic Party which belongs to the South  Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) coalition has listed federalism as an ideal  governance structure and also holding the government accountable as some of the activities they will be advocating for.
