Concerned South Sudanese say the 100 days of the extended pre-transitional period are running, unfortunately they are not seeing any positive development to complete the remaining tasks.
 
They call for political will to solve the security issue and number of states and boundaries in letter and spirit.
 
One of the citizens Sworo Nelson expects the key principles to form the unity government by February 22. But he cautions that all the processes should be done according to the interest of all South Sudanese.
 
“Any concern South Sudanese doesn’t expect anything, other than the success of the agreement. I’m here in Juba as an urban IDP because where I come from, the village has been deserted and everyone is in the camp. So, as a concern citizen, I expect a positive outcome. Unfortunately, days are running and nothing seems to have been done positively in a speedy way. As of today, days have run to around 80 days left. By February 22, we expect the government to be in place. However, all the process of forming the government should shoot the interest of the ordinary South Sudanese", Sworo pleads. 
 
Another citizen, Charity Chamba calls for commitment to resolve the remaining tasks.
 
“What I have been observing is that, at least there is improvement because Riek came to Juba, because people were saying he would not come until those days after the six months, but he came. I see there is improvement in the implementation and I have seen that they have put much effort in to implementing the agreement because of the extension of the 100 days. The government and the IO or any signatory to the agreement should be committed to whatever they have promised to do for the citizens. If there is commitment, everything will run peacefully and smoothly, says Chamba.
 
Meanwhile, NPTC Deputy Chair, Gabriel Changson Chang is optimistic that things will move on by next week.
 
However, a South Sudanese civil society activist, Rajab Mohandis says the delays to meet the deadline of the extended 100-days is not a good sign.
 
But he says although there are delays, there are some positive signs.
