The agreement provides for the creation of an UNTT in South Sudan. This RTGoNU is responsible for governing for a 36-month transition period that begins eight months after the signing of the R-ARCSS. Democratic elections will be held 60 days before the end of the transition period. The same agreement also provides for a single executive chairman (Kiir), a first vice-president (Machar) and four vice-presidents appointed by TGoNU, SSOA, the current TGoNU and former detainees. While the first vice-president is responsible for tasking the cabinet group for governance issues, the other four vice-presidents will mandate their assigned clusters of firms: the economic cluster, the distribution service, the infrastructure cluster and the Gender and Youth cluster. – Adhieu 🇸🇸 W.A.P – Women Against the Patriarchate (@modernemeid) August 5, 2018 R-ARCSS has the potential to facilitate the return to peace, stability, reconciliation, unity and prosperity in South Sudan. The potential obstacles lie before us in the form of a lack of political will and determination, mistrust and mistrust between parties, the inability to address some of the root causes of the conflict, resource-efficient means and the inevitable opposition of some parties to implement politically sensitive provisions of the R-ARCSS. There are facilitators who facilitate the successful implementation of the Peace Pact: a strong agreement on substance and content, inclusiveness and representativeness of the agreement, legitimacy, the role of IGAD, the ability to maintain and maintain trust and cooperation between the parties, and the effective implementation of provisions relating to justice, national healing and reconciliation. Faced with this reality, the R-ARCSS should provide a new opportunity for all parties to renew constructive working relationships and unite their constituents at a time when the country is marked by deep-seated social divisions. This would require significant, long-term efforts to promote progressive confidence and confidence-building measures as the basis for their engagement. To achieve this, all citizens and interest groups must contribute to this. For Juliette Paauwe, a research analyst at the U.S.-based Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, it will take more than a power-sharing between two ferocious enemies who have already broken a dozen previous agreements to end the bloodshed. Other recent measures to revive ARCSS were the signing on 27 June of the Khartoum Declaration – which maintains a permanent ceasefire (which holds widely) and a commitment to withdraw troops from urban centres – and a detailed agreement on security arrangements signed on 6 July.

“An agreement on outstanding issues has been signed and this agreement expresses the commitment of all parties to a ceasefire,” said Sudanese Foreign Minister Al-Dirdiri Mohamed, who helped mediate the agreement. He and President Salva Kiir signed the agreement in neighbouring Sudan. The expanded nature of the R-ARCSS RTGoNU may be a stumbling block in the pursuit of the objectives of the agreement. It is easy to understand that the enlarged Office, cabinet and Parliament were deliberately designed to adapt pragmatically to the procrust bed of South Sudan`s political reality.
