JUBA - The Community Empowerment Program Organization (CEPO) in a press release yesterday called on the leadership of the Republic of South Sudan to include all parties to participate in the coming constitutional making process due to start soon.“CEPO applauds the leadership of South Sudan government for ensuring that the constitutional making process will start early under multi-party participation,” read part of the statement extended to The Citizen. They appreciate Vice President Dr.Riek Machar for the new development of the constitutional review processes and the formation of the National Constitution Review Commission that will timely allow an effective involvement for the constitutional review processes. CEPO urges the government leadership not to forget the representation of the civil society organizations in the national constitutional review commission. Civil society complains that its absence in the National Constitutional Review Commission always leads to low participation of the civil societies in the constitutional review processes. CEPO therefore calls upon the leadership to allow the family of South Sudan civil society organizations to nominate their candidates than getting representation through hand-picked individuals who are not chosen by the South Sudan civil society organization family. “During the transitional constitution making processes, the civil society organizations were represented by hand-picked famous South Sudanese politician,” they complain in their statement and hope that in the forthcoming national constitution review processes same mistake would be avoided.
